BIPOC History Ride

San Diego BIPOC History Tour by Bike
Limited to 10 spots - Masks Required

Join us for a BikeSD hosted, San Diego BIPOC History Ride on September 12th at 9:00 a.m. You can ride with members of BikeSD through San Diego, visiting historic spaces and significant sites--some of which may be familiar, and some of which you may have passed a hundred times without knowing they were there. These guides will help you navigate the city, following the route established for the San Diego Design Week BIPOC History Ride.  They aren't tour guides, just local cyclists who have volunteered to guide this group ride.   Riders will still rely on the Design Week programming for information.

Talking Points:

  • Support Item #2 - Complete Communities: Mobility Choices & Housing Solutions which will help create a healthier, safer and more livable city with more transportation options.
  • Support the Active Transportation In Lieu Fee and Neighborhood Enhancement In Lieu Fee because those policies will provide more funding to complete active transportation networks throughout the urban core, and create more programs to support active transportation.
  • Support the Complete Communities Housing Solutions and Mobility Choices which will impose a fee for Vehicle Miles Traveled reduction to fund alternative transportation options focused in historically underserved communities and go a long way in lowering San Diego's dependence on automobiles. 
  • Today’s action will help make San Diego a more bikeable city and help us achieve the Climate Action Plan mode share goals for transportation.
