Oceanside Coast Highway Corridor Study

Coast Highway Vision and Stategic Plan

We support a design plan that would reduce the travel lanes from 4 to 2, add 6ft bike lanes in each direction, replace intersections with roundabouts, and create wider pedestrian walkways.

Chula Vista Broadway Bikeway

Bike Lanes on Broadway

We are pushing for class 2 bike lanes (buffered bike lanes) along Broadway. This corridor has the highest concentration of both bicyclist and pedestrian collisions in the city.

Planned Bicycle Network Solana Beach

The Bike Coalition will support Bike Walk Solana  on this project by developing outreach materials and holding community workshops to gather input and support.

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 join or renew their membership with the Bike Coalition. Join or renew today.
