Photo by: @SustainMatters Thank-you City of San Diego and Mayor Kevin Faulconer for new, Class-IV, protected cycle tracks along West Point Loma Avenue. After pipe work and repaving, a substantial safety upgrade of a vital connection between Midway District homes, businesses and shopping to Point Loma and OB homes, parks, beaches and services. Bikes and beaches are a real connection made in paradise. Feel safe on your bicycle adventures and enjoy good health, clean transportation and fun, engaging explorations of our communities. Let the good times roll!

Thanks to everyone who joined in support of safe, protected, cycle tracks along 30th Street (Option “A”). It was a terrific turn out, showing the community how much enthusiasm there is for a healthy, safe and reliable mode of clean transportation in our neighborhoods. Advocating for safe bicycle infrastructure is easier when you have hundreds of supporters backing you up! Special thanks to Climate Action Campaign, San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, Bike San Diego, City Heights Community Development Corporation and Circulate San Diego.

Safe Streets For All Family Ride

Bird Park at 28th Street and Upas Street

The bicycling community enjoyed a family ride from Bird Park at 28th and Upas to Teralta Park in City Heights calling for safe, climate-friendly, healthy, and connected communities, starting with the implementation of “Option A” on 30th Street. Option A is the design concept for 30th that is the safest and most comfortable for cyclists and provides the most space for plenty of riders to enjoy the road.

Close to 300 bicyclists of all ages joined in supporting the development of a world-class transportation network in San Diego. Enjoying a beautiful ride along two soon-to-be multi-modal corridors, 30th Street through North Park and Howard/Orange Avenue in Mid-City, we completed the ride and celebrated at Teralta Park at the end!

City of San Diego: We’re answering your questions
about the new protected bikeways in downtown.

Safe streets for everyone, especially young riders, has always been a prime motivation in my quest to encourage, promote and advocate for bicycling in our beautiful city. Let’s keep it rolling!

Bicycling in San Diego, dreaming I’m in the Netherlands. If we keep rolling up the bike infrastructure successes, we could get there from here!
