City Heights Area Planning Committee Meeting

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

3910 University Ave., San Diego.

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.

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.

Walk + Bike is a partnership led by the City of Carlsbad, Circulate San Diego and the San Diego County Bicycle Coalitionto promote walking and biking around Carlsbad, with a special focus on the downtown Village and surrounding areas. The 12-month campaign is funded by a grant from the San Diego Association of Governments and includes events, outreach to schools, business promotions and other activities to get more people walking and biking instead of driving on short trips around town.
