San Francycle: Can Treat Street Become Mission Bay's Bike Superhighway?

First, it was a stinky marsh. Then it was a railroad. Now, Treat Street faces a new lease on life with a vision to transform it from a dilapidated, weirdly diagonal alleyway into a sparkling green bike corridor.

It would be a pretty amazing accomplishment: a smooth path that curves up from the Inner Mission, then skirts Showplace Square just south of SOMA and glides to Mission Bay. You could be forgiven for thinking of it as a sort of “Hipster Superhighway,” though it would likely carry bicyclists from all walks of life.
