bike to work

Save the date! Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 15, 2015.

iCommute Bike Month Mini-Grant Program. Thank you to all the organizations who applied for a Bike Month Mini-Grant. All funds have been allocated and the application period is now closed. We look forward to supporting the funded projects leading up to, during, and following Bike Month this year. Congratulations to our funded recipients.

GO by BIKE. With an average temperature of 71 degrees, the San Diego region is one of the best places in the country for people to commute on two wheels. By biking to work you can save money, reduce stress, get fit, and help the environment.

Get started today. iCommute has the information you need to get moving!

May is Bike Month. Residents across the region have the opportunity to GO by BIKE all month long as San Diego celebrates Bike Month. Commuters and employers will pledge to bike to work on May 15, when there will be pit stop locations throughout the region offering fun breaks for participants. Pledge to bike to work and join thousands of other bike riders as we attempt to log 25,000 miles – the equivalent of one trip around the world! 

Bike lockers and secure bike parking. Leave your bike in a secure location while you work. There are currently more than 60 locations that feature bike lockers, with more added annually. The locations include Trolley stations, all COASTER and SPRINTER stations, I-15 Rapid transit stations, and some Park & Ride lots. All sites are shown on the San Diego Regional Bike Map.

The majority of locations offer mechanical lockers, however more and more stations are featuring electronic bike lockers. Mechanical and electronic bike lockers can be accessed for a $25 key deposit. Lockers are available to commuters on a first-come, first-served basis and users are asked to log the locker’s use with a corresponding bicycle trip entry in the iCommute TripTracker tool. For details, see the Regional Bicycle Parking Program Agreement.

Try out the new bike parking facility at the Sabre Springs/Peñasquitos Transit Station, the first in San Diego County! It's equipped with 20 lockable bike racks, a bike pump, and a repair workstation. A valid Compass Card is required to use this facility.

Sign up for an iCommute account and submit an online registration form to reserve your locker or Bike Parking space, or be added to a waiting list.
