Opponents of Prop 6 ride through SF decked out in wigs, high heels

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - Opponents of Proposition 6— a ballot measure to repeal California's 2017 gas hike— rode their bikes through San Francisco Sunday and poked fun at Republican congressional candidate Diane Harkey. 

The group wanted to send a clear message, and they did that in a unique way.

They biked from the Castro to Civic Center Plaza, wearing heels, dresses, and wigs, in response to comments made by Harkey during a Yes on 6 campaign rally two weeks ago. 

"This is just fraud. It's forcing you to take bikes, get on trains, hose off at the depot and try to get to work," she said. "That does not work. That does not work with my hair and heels. I cannot do that and I will not do that." 

Prop 6 would repeal an increase in fuel taxes and vehicle fees that is slated to fund $5 billion in transportation projects a year. 

Opponents of the proposition rode their bikes about two miles in an effort to show their support for public transportation. 

Brian Wiedenmeier with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition said, "This is all about making sure Californians vote to support our roads and our infrastructure. Yes on six would take us back and take away much-needed funds for bike and pedestrian safety projects."
