Regional Bike Walk Alliance
The Regional Bike Walk Alliance was created by the Bike Coalition in partnership with Circulate San Diego.The Alliance brings together local community leaders and bicycle and pedestrian advocates to develop strategies to support the implementation of the San Diego Regional Bike Plan which will ultimately get more San Diegans riding, encourage healthy and active lifestyles and be a leading example of how local advocacy can influence regional growth policies.
The Bike Coalition supports these local groups by providing them with resources, membership and guidance with their advocacy and education efforts. There are currently 9 cities in the county that have a Bike Walk group affiliated with the Alliance.
Bike Coalition members can now opt to join a local Bike Walk advocacy group when they become a member of the Bike Coalition – join today – it’s free!
