Long Description:
The Duboce Bikeway mural was designed by Mona Caron during a period (1996 -1998) of great transformation and activity within fast-growing bicyclist community of San Francisco.

The Duboce Bikeway was the very first stretch of street in SF to be converted from car use, to bicycle- and pedestrian-only use.

The City Bike Plan commissioned this mural to accompany this first bikeway, and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition fiscally sponsored the project.

The Duboce Bikeway is the gateway to the Wiggle - a zig-zagging route through the Lower Haight that enables bicyclists to avoid steep hills when heading from East to West in San Francisco. Thus, the mural shows a virtual ride across the whole city, from downtown to Ocean Beach.

The mural can be seen in a painted utility box, called Manifestation Station, also by Mona Caron.
