Nicole Burgess

Nicole Burgess is a passionate bike advocate who loves to ride. With her Dutch blood, she understands all the joys and benefits of riding a bicycle for transportation and continues to advocate daily for San Diego to become a World Class Bicycle Friendly City.

Nicole began the Dana Bike Train in Ocean Beach which ran for 6 consecutive years. She would encourage, educate, and support local students to become active commuters to school. The bike train grew to 20+ students and Nicole began to advocate for safe bike infrastructure to support Safe Routes to Schools at the City, SANDAG and local community groups.

Nicole has pedaled over 60k miles since 2010. She has traveled by bike along both coasts, across many states, and has biked through Nova Scotia, Holland, Denmark, and Guadalajara.

As a League Certified Instructor and a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher, Nicole hopes to inspire more people to explore their city by bike.
