Donut Ride in support of City Council D3 candidate Chris Olsen

The BikeSD family met at Nomad Donuts, the first stop on a sweet bike ride for Chris Olsen, our endorsed District 3 City Council candidate. Who knew that D3 has the best donut shops in all of San Diego? Nomad Donuts (gourmet donuts inspired by the world yet created with local ingredients) in North Park has amazing donuts. A small business in North Park, Nomad Donuts is very supportive of creating more bike infrastructure in North Park. From Nomad we rode west on University to Texas (quick stop at Golden Donuts for a group shot) and on to the  new bus and bike lane on El Cajon Blvd. We rode over the wonderful Vermont Street Bridge (we need more bike and pedestrian bridges) and got on University Ave to get to our next stop, Copper Top Coffee & Donuts (where donuts are made fresh every 30 minutes).

After more donuts and coffee, we rode down First Ave to Curlew and then on to Reynard Way.  Reynard Way has great potential to be a north/south connector and part of complete bike network. Reynard Way has light traffic and is wide enough to accommodate at least a buffered lane and maybe even a protected lane. It connects to Little Italy and our last stop Devil’s Dozen Donuts (carefully curated selections of donuts made using only the highest quality ingredients available.)

In Little Italy, people riding bikes have a distinct advantage when it comes to parking. We parked more than a dozen bicycles right in front and there is no way you could park a dozen cars in front of any business in Little Italy. Devil’s Dozen has an amazing second floor with a spectacular view to the bay and really cool furniture and a little picnic table for kids. And super donuts with shiny dripping glaze.

Why does BikeSD support Chris Olsen for City Council D3? Because he has the experience to get the job done. As a City Budget Analyst for six years with a Masters in Public Administration, Chris is also a lecturer of fiscal policy at the School of Public Affairs at San Diego State University. Chris Olsen has the experience and skill set needed to deliver results. He has seen first-hand where the City has fallen short and how we can spend limited resources most effectively. He listens to us. Bike the Vote. Vote for Chris Olsen.
