SANDAG Awards More than $55,000 for Free Family Bike Events

April 5, 2019 - In celebration of Bike Month in May, SANDAG has awarded 20 grants to organizations around the San Diego region to fund events that encourage biking.

The GO by BIKE Mini-Grants, issued by the SANDAG iCommute program, will fund free community events that include a variety of bike rides, a guided bike tour, bike rodeos, a bike scavenger hunt, bike-in movies, and bike education, safety and maintenance. 

These grants support the ongoing effort by SANDAG to encourage people to GO by BIKE, maintain an active lifestyle, and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. With more than 1,570 miles of bikeways, the San Diego region is one of the best places in the country for people to GO by BIKE.

For more than 20 years, SANDAG has hosted the region’s most popular Bike Month event, SANDAG Bike to Work Day. This year, the event will be held on Thursday, May 16.

Registered participants for the 29th Annual SANDAG Bike to Work Day are encouraged to join thousands of commuters from 6 to 9 a.m. and to stop at one of 100 pit stops countywide to pick up a free t-shirt, snacks, and encouragement.

See more event details or the full list of 2019 GO by BIKE Mini-Grant program recipients.
