Bike-Friendly Business Districts
Together with the San Diego Business Improvement District Council, the Bike Coalition launched a Bike Friendly Business District initiative to encourage more people to ride to their local business districts for their shopping and dining needs. Seven local Business Improvement Districts (BIDS) were included in the initial program which will eventually spread to all 16 local BIDS.
