The 49ers had their home opener last night … first NFL game, that counted, being played in Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers. The game ended sometime after 8 pm Sunday night, and it was anticipated that the gates would be open for the bike path. When the 49ers do play, the bike path is closed, but as soon as the event is over, they should re-open the bike path, right?
Well, it wasn’t. The gate was locked, on the northbound side of Tasman. That meant I had to backtrack to the other side, and then re-enter through Tasman on street. The same thing happened during the first exhibition game that the 49ers had. It’s bad enough that they close the bike path for the entire day (game didn’t start until 5:15 pm), but to keep it closed the day after?
Oh, and by the way, they also closed Great America Amusement Park, golf course, and probably the soccer field on game day as well. Not everyone is a football fan, especially with the backlash against the NFL with the domestic violence issue.
