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.

CITY CYCLING: PACIFIC BEACH

Not comfortable on the road?

Get ready to ride in the city! This class covers general bike safety, emergency maneuver skills, legal rights, and responsibilities. It’s perfect for beginners and equally valuable for experienced cyclists that want to brush up on road rules.  

Classes are open to bike riders of all ages. E-bikes welcome! Class content applies to both regular and e-bikes. The 3-hour class is broken up into 3 parts: lecture, skills drills, and road riding. The road riding portion of this class is about a 4-mile guided bike ride and we take frequent stops to discuss bike infrastructure and riding skills. Class sizes are limited so register now! 

Register at sdbikecoalition.org/events
 
*Before the class: Make sure your bike is in good working order and ready to ride! Helmets are required and we can provide free helmets by advanced request. This is not a “learn-to-ride” class.*

1. Be extremely predictable 2. Be visible 3. Wear protective gear 4. No matter who's right or wrong, just like on a motorcycle, bicyclists always get the shorter straw dealt in an accident with a vehicle

While I like roundabouts, I do not like the design to force cyclists onto the side walk. The bike lane should be carried through the roundabout. I always take the lane and ride the roundabout just like a car.

Glad it went well with the rain et al.

Were searching for some volunteers who would like to be Bike Valets at a few events!

The first event will be the Farmers Open Insurance Golf Tournament (Jan 25th - 28th)! This is a multi day event so there are plenty of time slots for you to choose from. Sign up for a few hours of volunteer work all while enjoying the views and sounds of the tournament!

The second event is the SDBMA Archipelago Ride on April 1st! If you love the outdoors and mountain biking, then volunteering for this event is for you! Two time slots are available, so make sure to sign up before the positions fill up.

Make sure to register for volunteer opportunities at sdbikecoaliiton.org/get-involed/volunteer

What is a Bike Valet? A bike valet checks in and parks bikes, while keeping a close eye on them for guests who are attending the event.
