SAN DIEGO – “The visiting Orioles continue their interleague schedule against the San Diego Padres on Wednesday and that brings a smile to Baltimore manager Buck Showalter's face. And not just because the AL East-leading Orioles are seeking their seventh straight victory. ‘It's easier to keep everyone happy in National League games," Showalter said. "Everybody is more on their toes and thinking about the game because you use more players. And it's the same with the bullpen.’”

Countywide Organization Recaps Momentous Year on Two Wheels

San Diego Bike Coalition announces top 2014 regional bicycle achievements

December 2014, SAN DIEGO, CA – As 2014 draws to a close, the San Diego County Bike Coalition reflects on a year of regional two-wheeled triumphs that have made San Diego a safer place for all people on bikes.

Top bicycle achievements for the San Diego region include:

  • The Three-Feet for Safety Act became law, raising awareness about safely sharing roads with people on bikes
  • Two CicloSDias events brought thousands out to roll through miles of car-free streets in Pacific Beach and Hillcrest/Bankers Hill
  • The National Bike Tourism Conference came to San Diego for the first time in its 25-year history.
  • The Protected Bikeways Act passed, encouraging cities to use safer, modern infrastructure for bikeway design.
  • The City of San Diego approved its first-ever Bike Advisory Committee, naming the San Diego Bike Coalition’s Andy Hanshaw as Committee Chair.
  • A record number of people participated in Bike Month and Bike to Work Day, despite its postponement.
  • City of San Diego committed to DECO Bike Share, installing 1,800 bikes and 180 bike stations citywide and launching in early 2015.
  • The City of Coronado joined Oceanside, Chula Vista and only 57 other cities nationwide with a Silver Bike-Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists.
  • New Belgium Brewing’s annual Tour de Fat raised more than $45,000 for local bicycle nonprofits in San Diego.

“With the implementation of two laws to raise awareness, bike sharing, CicloSDias events and so much more, I am happy to say that San Diego is becoming a bicycle-friendly region,” says Bike Coalition Executive Director Andy Hanshaw. “2015 has the potential to be one of the best years for bicycling yet, but 2014 won’t be easy to beat.”

Press Conference: Community Urges SANDAG to Prioritize Bicycling, Walking, Transit Rather Than Freeway Expansion

Local organizations unveil third scenario for SANDAG’s consideration

WHAT: Nearly two-thirds of San Diegans surveyed prefer to invest in public transit, bicycling and walking paths before freeway expansion, yet SANDAG has prioritized freeway expansion.

At a press conference tomorrow morning, Environmental Health Coalition,15 supporting organizations and residents ask SANDAG to consider a third transportation scenario that deprioritizes freeway expansion. Speakers will specify what a third scenario includes and explain why public transit, bicycling and walking paths are the first step toward transportation that works for all community members.

The third scenario represents an opportunity to improve air quality and quality of life for residents of underserved neighborhoods who can’t afford public transit, struggle with hours of daily commuting and can’t safely walk or bike on existing streets.

WHY: Following the press conference, the SANDAG Transportation Committee and Regional Planning Committee will evaluate transportation scenarios for the San Diego Forward Regional Plan and provide their recommendation to the board. Currently, both proposals prioritize freeway expansion in the earlier phases of implementation over development of alternative transportation such as transit, bicycling and walking – though community members want the latter.

WHEN: Friday, September 5, 8 a.m.
WHERE: Front plaza of Wells Fargo Building (SANDAG): 401 B Street, San Diego, 92101

WHO:

  • Monique López, Environmental Health Coalition policy advocate
  • Bruce Reznik, San Diego Housing Federation executive director
  • Alicia Sebastian, MAAC Project community organizer

Nearly 15 local organizations, including Cleveland National Forest Foundation, Bike SD, BAME Community Development Corporation,, City Heights Community Development Corporation, , MAAC Project, San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, Surfrider San Diego and more Community members
