Why celebrate the bicycle?
Promote Good Health: Regular physical activity of moderate intensity – such as walking, cycling, or doing sports – has significant benefits for health. At all ages, the benefits of being physically active outweigh potential harm, for example through accidents. Some physical activity is better than none. By becoming more active throughout the day in relatively simple ways, people can quite easily achieve the recommended activity levels.
Protect the Environment: The mobility needs of people who walk and cycle – often the majority of citizens in a city – continue to be overlooked, states Share the Road Programme Annual Report 2018, even though the benefits of investing in pedestrians and cyclists can save lives, help protect the environment and support poverty reduction. Meeting the needs of people who walk and cycle continues to be a critical part of the mobility solution for helping cities de-couple population growth from increased emissions, and to improve air quality and road safety.
Equitable and Cost-Effective: According to the World Health Organization (WHO), safe infrastructure for walking and cycling is also a pathway for achieving greater health equity. For the poorest urban sector, who often cannot afford private vehicles, walking and cycling can provide a form of transport while reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, diabetes, and even death. Accordingly, improved active transport is not only healthy; it is also equitable and cost-effective.
- The bicycle is a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation;
- The bicycle can serve as a tool for development and as a means not just of transportation but also of access to education, health care and sport;
- The synergy between the bicycle and the user fosters creativity and social engagement and gives the user an immediate awareness of the local environment;
- The bicycle is a symbol of sustainable transportation and conveys a positive message to foster sustainable consumption and production, and has a positive impact on climate.
City of San Diego
The overarching goals of the City of San Diego’s Mobility Board are to inform transportation decision making holistically to ensure that people driving, walking, bicycling, taking transit, parking or using other transportation modes will have safe, easy-to-use choices to move around the city; and that development of the transportation network helps to meet the City’s Climate Action Plan goals.
Learn what is happening for bicycling throughout the City of San Diego. Bicycle funding, priorities, direction and challenges. Join us with thoughts and ideas; these meetings are open to the public and your attendance is welcomed and encouraged.
The City Council dissolved the Bicycle Advisory Committee(BAC) in 2018. A new Mobility Board has been approved to begin in 2019. Audio and written transcripts of past BAC meeting minutes are available here.
Do you have bike/walk ideas or suggestions for District 2 specifically?
Send them along and they can be raised in the local District 2 planning groups and community councils and other local community forums.
