Register Now: Bike to the Border

Thanks to Art at A-7 Design for the gorgeous design work.

Registration is now open to Bike to the Border! If you sign up by 7PM tonight, you can place an order for an American Apparel t-shirt (or tank top) along with your registration. The ride is family friendly and flat, so please bring the kids and the grandparents.

This month we continue the work of showcasing great San Diego neighborhoods, outstanding businesses that support our work, along with beautiful scenery, bicycle facilities and most importantly – elected officials who steadfastly support our work to create safer streets. We are very honored to have Councilmember David Alvarez as a sponsor of our Bike to the Border ride. Prior to the start of the ride, he will talk about the work he has done to date and the work he continues to do in San Diego and at the San Diego/Tijuana border to facilitate safe transportation access.

Below here are a few logistical details. We want your Saturday to be as perfect and fun as we can make it.

  • Registration, ride start and end location: Border X Brewing Parking Lot (in the rear) in Barrio Logan.
  • How to get there: The 12th and Imperial Transit Station is less than a mile away from Border X. If you plan on driving, we encourage you to carpool. Post on our Facebook event page about your carpooling asks/offers and save some gas while making new friends.
  • Check in: 8AM – 9:30AM. Ride starts promptly at 10AM.
  • ☕️Cafe Moto coffee roaster tour and free cup of coffee: The optional Cafe Moto roaster tour begins at 9AM. We will walk from Border X to Cafe Moto which is a block away.
  • What to bring: The ride will be at a conversational pace, but the day will be warm so please bring water bottles. We recommend two bottles. You can refill them at the pitstop in San Ysidro that will be staffed by our volunteers. We also recommend that you bring a spare tube and a pump, a camera to capture memories, sunscreen, sunglasses, and cash for food at Border X. Remember: the first drink is on us.
  • Route map: is available here. Our volunteer ride leaders will be both leading the ride and riding in the rear to make sure no one gets lost or is riding alone. If you are an experienced ride, befriend someone you don’t know and ride with them – we encourage it.
  • Chain X Bike and Skate Shop in Barrio Logan is going to be on-site to do minor repairs and brake adjustments.

And most importantly, have fun! It’s going to be a great day!
