Our Mantra

The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition advocates for, and protects the rights of all people who ride bicycles. We promote bicycling as a mainstream, safe and enjoyable form of transportation and recreation.

We believe bicycling is a healthy, affordable, and environmentally friendly form of transportation and recreation that should be safe and attractive to everyone who wants to ride, wherever their destination and whatever their purpose. Bicycling is good for our communities and for the people who ride, and so we work to increase the number of people who ride bikes as a regular part of their lives. Learn more…

ALERT to bicyclists from SANDAG Temporary Delays on Rose Canyon Bike Path Scheduled for Thursday Night

Cyclists will experience temporary delays on the Rose Canyon Bike Path while SDG&E crews remove utility poles near the pathway on Thursday evening.

Intermittent, temporary delays will occur from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. These delays are necessary to ensure the safety of crews and cyclists while work is underway. Traffic controls will be in place to alert cyclists of the work.

Motorists will not be impacted during construction.

The Mid-Coast Trolley Project will extend Blue Line Trolley service from Old Town north to the University City community, serving major activity centers such as Mission Bay Park, the VA Medical Center, UC San Diego, and University Town Center. Nine new stations will be constructed. Major construction work began in 2016, with service anticipated to begin in 2021.
