Climate Ride ~ 2017


Death Valley National Park
February 25, 2017 –  March 2, 2017
Support Nicole’s Ride here.

For those that know me, you know I love to ride my bike near and far. I will be riding 250 miles through Death Valley with others to raise awareness for non-profit organizations that protect our environment, advocate for bike transportation, and promote healthy lifestyle choices.

My focus is on raising funds for the San Diego Bike Coalition to hire dedicated staff working to encourage bicycling among the public, advocating with government agencies (City of San Diego, SANDAG, County of San Diego, etc.) to promote bicycling in public policy,  and collaborating with community organizations to complete safer, comfortable, utilitarian bike facilities.

With a $50 donation, you will also receive a one year membership with the San Diego Bike Coalition; keeping you apprised of ongoing advocacy efforts, bike events and membership discounts.

You can make a secure online donation today by clicking on the ‘Support Me’ button in this LINK. You’ll automatically receive an acknowledgment and I will be notified by email of your support. Your generous donation is an investment to transform our streets for safety, sustainability and health.

Please enjoy a ride soon and I thank you for your support.

It certainly adds a level of comfort and safety for two blocks as bicyclist ride away from a very busy intersection at Grand Ave. & Mission Blvd.

Door Zone danger reduced.

This women was fiddling with her baby and gear for five minutes or more. It’s an obvious indication of the added room and safety from doors being opened into bicyclist, as well as for the folks accessing the driver side of their automobiles.
