Now that we are in the midst of summer it is time for another ride and this time we are riding to the border. San Diego is lucky to be right next to Mexico and on September 19th join us in a ride to and from the San Diego/Mexico border. More details are available on the registration website.

As always we wouldn’t be able to put on a great ride without great partners, so we want to thank Cafe Moto for being a sponsor, Border X Brewing for being the host for the after-party, Chain X Bike and Skate Shop for being the ride shop to address all your bike repair and maintenance needs – all these great businesses are located in Barrio Logan.

Councilmember David Alvarez, long a champion for safer streets, will not only be present for opening remarks, but he will also be doing the ride with us. Tickets, details, route, and more are available on the registration website and more information will be added as needed.

The ride will start in Barrio Logan at Border X Brewing (in the rear parking lot). We also have an optional tour open of Cafe Moto that is scheduled to occur before the ride. The start and end location is accessible by the 12th and Imperial Transit Center which is a 1-mile bike ride away. The ride is family friendly (kids under 15 are free), the route is flat and goes along the San Diego Bay and along parts of the Bayshore Bikeway.

This has already shaped up to be a great event to put on. We are all looking forward to seeing you on Semptember 19th.
