Programs & Advocacy

BikeSD’s programs are the heartbeat and the lifeline of our organization. These programs are centered around our mission which 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.


Our programs promote everyday riding, ensure that our concerns are heard and met by our elected representatives, and that San Diego’s city streets are redesigned to be safe for all road users. Our programs are focused toward getting more people riding bicycles which includes historically neglected communities.
