You are invited to the first ever Festival of Dankness, a celebration of the stickiest of the icky, the dankest of the dank, the bombest of the bomb-diggity. We hunted high and low for the most face-meltingly awesome new wave hoppy beers in the world, with the goal of showcasing incredible new approaches to brewing with hops, and hot damn did we ever come up with a killer list.

The Festival of Dankness will allow you to marvel at the ways badass breweries are using incredible new hops from around the world to craft juicy aroma bombs that are revolutionizing the craft beer world. Many brewers will be in attendance, allowing you to schmooze with some of the brightest minds in the hop game while taking in the gorgeous view of San Diego from downtown’s beautiful new Waterfront Park.

We’ll also have kickass food trucks for all your noshing needs, plenty of water stations, ample shade, and loads of luxurious merch.

Share the Road Ride on University Avenue

share the road_poster

Meet at MJ’s Cyclery and learn about the rules of the road and your rights. Under what circumstances are you entitled to take a full lane? How much space should drivers give when passing you as a bicycle rider (minimum of three feet). Bike San Diego and San Diego County Bicycle Coalition are working together to host these educational events to ensure that San Diegans all know the rules and the laws governing transportation, especially bicycling. Educational instructors will be onsite to answer questions, teach you the rules of the road and how to ride safely on a road. When riding all traffic laws must be obeyed and we will invite the SDPD to observe and participate (if they so wish). The route will be along University Avenue in Uptown.

SANDAG Meeting Re: Uptown Bike Project (Mission Hills Alignment)

The SANDAG Transportation Committee has direction from SANDAG executive director, Gary Gallegos, to water down the entire project to sharrows. This ignored the incredible community support for protected bike lanes in Uptown along University Avenue. Please take the time off from work and speak up for safer streets on University Ave. SANDAG is advocating for sharrows on University Ave – which does nothing for bicycle rider safety. University Ave is the deadliest street in the city of San Diego. Sharrows won’t keep you or any of us, safe. BikeSD supported a plan that the business community supports – the Frost plan called “Transform Hillcrest”. Backroom deals out of the public eye has gutted the entire 2+ years of community outreach. It is time for you to demand that your elected officials vote to spend your tax dollars wisely and not just continue to promote unhealthy lifestyles.

Ride of Silence (city of San Diego)


On May 20, 2015 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.

In 2003, Chris Phelan organized the first Ride of Silence in Dallas after endurance cyclist Larry Schwartz was hit by the mirror of a passing bus and was killed. (Read the full history here…)
