Our Mantra

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.

In a move to separate cyclists and scooter riders from cars on Pershing Drive, Mayor Todd Gloria has directed City staff to install flex posts to create bikeways in both directions. This will be a temporary measure until SANDAG begins construction on permanent protected bikeways on Pershing Drive, where two San Diegans recently lost their lives after being struck by cars.

Speed limit too high on that road, and of course motorists frequently exceed the speed limit. Dangerous road to even drive on. Probably impossible to reduce the speed limit because of California’s ridiculous law. Speed limit is moot anyway without enforcement of which there is very little. Motor vehicle culture for the win.

On the uphill this is a good idea. On the downhill it's a terrible one.

Education in driving safely WITH cyclists would benefit our community the most. Is there anything in the DMV handbooks/classes/driver's ed about driving next to cyclists? How to appropriately engage traffic with cyclists? Giving right-of-way? Moving over one lane when passing a cyclist? Etiquette of the road? Infrastructure isn't going to do anything if no one understands it or respects it.

We need the same on the bike lane on Regents road between 52 and Luna. Cars constantly use it as a turning lane or veer into it we while using their cell phones

Uggg these are not the answer. When debris, broken glass, rocks from the side of hill obstruct the lane. There is no safe way for a bike to avoid the obstacle. Darting between posts puts the bike quickly into the traffic lane. The barriers also ensure that the path cannot be cleaned. In a perfect world maybe these make sense the the real world they are “feel good” that make the problem worse. By the way there are several safer routes to get up and down the hill other than Pershing.

Hopefully the flexposts will make crashes less likely rather than more likely. Anyway, once the posts are up that means the bikeway is a Class IV cycle track, not a Class II bike lane, which means cyclists are not required to ride in the bikeway. Putting the “bike lane” label on the posts is confusing because it wrongly implies cyclists are required to ride there by CVC 21202. This makes road cyclists more likely to be harassed for riding in the road by motorists and law enforcement.

This is not actually Pershing or anywhere in San Diego. It's a stock photo.

can you please ask them to also turn on the street lights in that area? Saving money cost 2 people their lives there

Yeah those plastic poles will stop a 2-ton car with a driver looking at their cell phone from hitting a cyclist! REALLY??!!

Let the crashes begin.
