San Diego County bicycle coalition advocates for striping lanes on the bike route system whenever possible.
Shared Lane Markings
On streets that are a bit too narrow for lanes, or on busy sections of streets where bike lanes would be dangerous, we are advocating for the stenciling of Shared Lane Markings or "sharrows." These stencils have two big chevrons with a picture of a bike and serve as on-street signage to tell drivers to watch out for bicyclists, while putting bicyclists out of the dangerous door-zone.
Often you ride your bike somewhere and either can’t find a place to lock it to or have to lock it to a parking meter or worse, a tree? SDCBC is working to change this situation.
Bike Plan Implementation
San Diego County has a comprehensive Bike Plan we support. More than the Regional Transportation Plan, SDCBC works with local municipalities to make sure that cyclist interest are heard in local and regional bike plans and transportation plans.
Bike Transportation Funding
We’ve spent time lobbying our elected officials over the years to free up more funding and resources for bike transportation.
Complete Streets is the idea that the streets of our cities and towns ought to be for everyone, whether young or old, motorist or bicyclist, walker or wheelchair user, bus rider or shopkeeper. But too many of our streets are designed only for speeding cars. They’re unsafe for people on foot or bike - and unpleasant for everybody.
