Tues, March 5, 6pm - Vote the 'Rise Up Town' slate at Uptown Planners election

Come vote for BikeSD's endorsed slate of candidates for the Uptown Planners board
The slate consists of 7 emphatically pro-housing, pro-biking, pro-walking, pro-transit, and pro-more-neighbors candidates — called RISE UP TOWN. This March 5 election night offers a rare opportunity to shift the direction of Uptown Planners by bringing pro-housing/biking voices to a majority on the Uptown Planners board. We urge every BikeSD member and ally who lives (or owns a business or property) in Hillcrest, Mission Hills, Bankers Hill, UC Medical area, Middletown, and University Heights to come out and vote for the Rise Up Town slate at 6pm on Tuesday, March 5. This election has the potential to shape the direction of our community's land-use decisions — for the better — for years to come. Rise Up Town will be handing out slate cards at the line to vote.

Carnival of Caffeination logo

Sunday, Feb 16 - Carnival of Caffeination at Modern Times

The spectacle of caffeinated and fermented wonders that is our Annual Carnival of Caffeination makes its triumphant return as we turn San Diego’s Jacobs Center into a playground of caffeinated magic, rare & delicious beers, tasty cuisine, and aerial high-fiving with some of the world's most formidable brewers & roasters.

Get tickets

On hand will be a jaw-dropping arsenal of dark, coffee-centric, and barrel-aged beers alongside a king’s ransom of dazzling coffee-creations from some of the most boss-level roasters in the universe. Whether you’re a beer or coffee fan, prepare for a day of pure bliss. If you’re both, prepare for nirvanic levels of sensory pleasure.

We’ll have a seriously choice smorgasbord of food options (including vegan options), plus water stations and a stunning array of the sauciest merch you’ve ever laid eyes on--plus a few thrilling surprises.

All profits from this wonderland of beverage-craft will go to BikeSD, a non-profit at the forefront of making San Diego a better, more sustainable place to ride.
