Virtual bike education.

Choose from a bike commuting class or a virtual bike maintenance safety check. K-12 schools can register for an online bike and traffic safety class or virtual assembly.

Shared Streets Pilot Program. 
The 2021 GO by BIKE Mini-Grant program was paused due to the pandemic. Instead, grant funds were reallocated to the Shared Streets Pilot Program in support of Bike Month 2021. Two cities were awarded program funding to implement shared streets pilots that create safe and healthy spaces for biking and riding other micromobility options (e.g., scooters, skateboards) while reducing vehicle miles traveled. You can visit these Shared Streets projects during Bike Month! 

Previous Bike to Work Day events. 
The 30th SANDAG Bike to Work Day will be celebrated in 2022.SANDAG shifted gears in 2020 and prepared a variety of digital options to support San Diegans as they biked. The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition and Love to Ride held weekly Bike Month challenges, prizes, and classes. In 2019, more than 8,200 visits at 100 pit stops were recorded on 29th Annual SANDAG Bike to Work Day (rain or shine). Thank you to the record-breaking 7,593 participants who registered to GO by BIKE! Photos of the event can be found on the iCommute Facebook page.

GO by BIKE all year long. With more than 1,644 miles of bikeways in the San Diego region, you can get almost anywhere by riding a bike. Check out plans for new bikeways at GObyBIKEsd.com. iCommute can help you get started with riding tips, bike safety tips, secure bike parking, information about taking your bike on transit, and more. Chart your course using the San Diego Regional Bike Map.

SANDAG remains committed to building the “GO by BIKE” Regional Bike Network to make biking a convenient and safe option for everyday transportation needs. We hope you’ll consider opportunities to continue to GO by BIKE.
