We are more than “avid” cyclists at BikeSD, our mission is to establish San Diego as a world-class bicycling city by promoting everyday riding. We do this by advocating for and promoting world-class bicycling infrastructure that contributes toward an aesthetic, livable urban environment.

We know the challenges and frustrations people face when trying to find secure bike parking because we hear about it all of the time. We make recommendations that bicycle riders appreciate. Space limitations, user demands, surface types, security needs, concerns about appearance, and budgets all play a factor in selecting the right bike parking. BikeSD has over three years of experience advocating for better bicycling in San Diego, and our advocacy has resulted in real change on our city streets.
BikeSD will help you navigate San Diego’s bike parking standards and permits, recommends quality bike racks to best meet your needs, and we also offer free site-visits to make sure it’s done right. BikeSD has teamed up with Dero Bike Racks in this effort. Dero has been supplying innovative, high quality, thoughtfully designed bike parking and bicycle transit solutions to architects, contractors, municipalities, higher education, and parks and rec since 1995. Together we offer exceptional customer service, quick turn-around for quotes and invoices, and free CAD layouts. All bike parking sales benefit BikeSD’s bike advocacy efforts.
