Nicole’s Passions and Beliefs:

 “I care greatly about the environment, our health and the well being of our youth. I love   riding throughout the City of San Diego and truly enjoy commuting by bicycle for all my needs. I am passionate about encouraging others to  experience the benefits of commuting by bike as well.

I advocate for the much needed bicycling and pedestrian infrastructure throughout the city. I believe that San Diego has the potential to become a World-Class Bike Friendly City and want to facilitate the collaboration between stakeholders, as this is critical for progress. Finally, I believe the City of San Diego can provide alternative transportation choices which will contribute to creating healthy children, a cleaner and more sustainable environment, vibrant economies, and safer roadways for all. “
