Sausalito makes plans to deal with bike renters

If you've travelled anywhere betwen San Francisco and Marin during the summer (or any other time of year) you'll notice a lot of people riding across the Golden Gate Bridge and along Marin bike paths on rental bikes. Apparrently, Sausalito feels like they are overwhelming the town. The following article reports that the Sausalito City Council has approved a plan to provide designated bike parking areas.

It seems like a common sense solution. I think the efforts described in the article to get the bike rental companies to contribute is laudable. It seems like Sausalito and Marin in general could be doing a lot more to provide facilities for this mode of tourism - there seems to be an element that sees this as creating a nuisance rather than embracing the situation as an opportunity.
