“This will be a fun community event that encourages people of all ages to enjoy the simple pleasures of riding a bike, especially in great places like OB,” said Nicole Burgess, a member of the city’s San Diego Bicycle Advisory Committee from Council District 2 representing the Peninsula. “There will be a little something for everyone, so come join friends and neighbors by bike. Bring beach gear and make it a day by enjoying lunch locally and rolling down to the beach to start the summer of fun.”
Join families from all over the Point Loma Cluster at OB Elementary for bike education, obstacle courses, bike maintenance, a community ride and more.
“We endorse any event that encourages people, especially young people, to ride bikes or use other non-motorized means of travel,” said Andy Hanshaw, executive director of the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, the region’s largest bicycle advocacy group.
Bicycles, skateboards, scooters and E-Bikes are all welcome and encouraged to participate in the June 13 event.
The day begins at the elementary school with short and long community rides lasting about 45 minutes. At 11:30 a.m. there will be an unveiling of kids bike art banners, to be followed at 11:45 with an opportunity drawing.
The Bike Fiesta event is facilitated by a grant from iCommute and the San Diego Association of Governments, the San Diego region’s transportation planning agency.
