Paseo de Todos Ride to Tijuana

DATE: May 1 @ 6:00 pm
LOCATION: Mission Brewery

Paseo de Todos (Tijuana ride) is on the First Friday of every month. May 1st ride is in honor of Hans Wangbichler.

San Diego contingent meets at Mission Brewery in downtown San Diego with a departure of 6-ish if riding to the border. Others take the Trolley down to the San Ysidro border and then a short walk to cross the border.

Here, it’s time again for our monthly ride to join the bicycling community in Tijuana. For those who have never been, throw out all the crap that’s been programmed into your mind. Baja is nothing like “mainland” Mexico. Riding in Tijuana, you will experience more courtesy than in San Diego, and the one time that we sold that blonde, we made enough money to buy tacos for everyone, and still got to keep her bike (which was later given to charity). We meet at Mission Brewery and ride down and back (18mi there, 12mi in TJ, 18mi back). an option is to take the trolley for the US portion and meet the group for the TJ portion. We like to keep a 15mph pace in the ‘States to allow for flats, train, etc. Once in Tijuana, the pace is rather slow, allowing for all ages/abilities. We grab a bite to eat before heading back. You haven’t lived until you’ve had an IPA in San Diego, and tacos in Tijuana.

City Heights Area Planning Committee Meeting

DATE: May 4 @ 6:30 pm
LOCATION: Metro Career Center

3910 University Ave.,  3rd floor conference room

 

Monday night, May 4th at 6:30pm, the City Heights Area Planning Committee will be making a decision about the SANDAG North Park – Mid City Bikeways Project.

Throughout the years we’ve heard from countless residents that City Heights needs and deserves safe streets as soon as possible.

Research backs this up. According to the City Heights Walks To School Report, during the span of 4 years there were reportedly 114 kids hit by cars while walking or biking within a quarter mile of City Heights schools.

The SANDAG North Park – Mid City Bikeways Project will be one of City Heights Area Planning Committee’s biggest and best chances to create safer streets in City Heights. The project has an approved budget $20 million. The physical safety features being planned will make the streets safer for all people walking, biking, and driving.

More information about the Bayshore Bikeway on SANDAG’s website here

The Bayshore Bikeway is a regional corridor that will eventually extend 24 miles around San Diego Bay, providing a vital and scenic connection to major bayfront employers, as well as tourist and recreational destinations. Approximately 15 miles of bicycle paths have been built to date. The rest of the bikeway consists of on-street sections designated as either bicycle lanes or bicycle routes. 

SANDAG is developing additional improvements to the Bayshore Bikeway based on the Bayshore Bikeway Plan, which was adopted by SANDAG in 2006 to identify opportunities to improve the bikeway primarily along the east side of the San Diego Bay. The objective is to develop a continuous Class I bike path that would allow bicyclists to ride all the way around San Diego Bay on a dedicated path away from city streets.

Bike Month Bike and Brunch

DATE: May 17 @ 10:45 am
LOCATION: Bea Evenson Fountain

In Balboa Park, near El Prado.
here is a map: http://tinyurl.com/m8sjukd

May is National Bike Month! If you have been putting off this event previously, now is the perfect time to try it out!

We will travel on lower-traffic roads, and the route will be close to eleven miles, including the ride back to the start. Our slowest riders will set our pace, and if you’re not too interested in climbing up hills, the route will be relatively flat save the climb back to the park, where we will take it easy. If an incline is more than you or your bike can bear, there will be no shame in walking. This ride is perfect for less confident riders, riders who are interested in socializing, and/or those who just want to feel better about eating a few extra calories because you earned it!

After all, what might be even better than this ride is a place to sit and relax after all that work! Brunch-y goodness will follow. We will eat at the Pearl Hotel in Point Loma:

http://www.thepearlsd.com/bpdocuments/Brunch_2015_Menu.pdf

IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND BRUNCH AFTER THE RIDE, YOU MUST RSVP ASAP, as this month the event has a reservation limit. If you RSVP yes, it is assumed you want to attend the brunch, so if you only want to come along for the ride, please indicate this in a comment or message to me.

For updates, please check Facebook event

After brunch, we will ride back to the starting place for those who need to return to cars.

What’s expected of you:

Even if you’re waayyy out of practice, you should know the general concept of how to ride a bike. Please ride with the group, not ahead. You will not be required to wear a helmet if you don’t have one, but the use of a helmet is encouraged. * Don’t forget to bring a lock, and make sure your bike is in working order well before the ride, so don’t wait until the last minute to dust it off from storage :)

This is a regular monthly ride on the third Sunday of the month, so if you can’t come this time and really want to, save the date for June 21st.

If you plan on driving, I admit I’m not sure how crazy the parking is on a Sunday at Balboa park, but there is information about parking here: http://www.balboapark.org/visit/parking
If you are unsure of where the Bea Evenson Fountain is, here is a map: http://tinyurl.com/m8sjukd

* If you or anyone with you are under 18, a helmet is required, as it is a legal requirement in the state of California: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d11/vc21212.htm
Let me know if you need a helmet and I will make sure you have one.

Happy riding :)
