Thousands Pedal Across The Region for SANDAG Bike Anywhere Day 2024

9,020 Visits Recorded at More Than 100 Pit Stops from Oceanside to Tijuana

Thousands participated in SANDAG Bike Anywhere Day on Thursday morning. Across the region, 9,020 visits were recorded at more than 100 pit stops. 

"I want to thank the thousands of people who joined us for Bike Anywhere Day. This incredible, annual event inspires our communities to see biking as a convenient, fun, and healthy way for everyday travel,” said SANDAG and San Diego County Supervisor Chairwoman Nora Vargas. “Biking plays a big role in enhancing mobility, reducing air pollution, alleviating traffic, and improving the overall health of our communities."

For more than 30 years, SANDAG has led the region in building bikeways and encouraging people to choose a cleaner and healthier way to get around. From Oceanside to Tijuana, pit stops provided fun and engaging opportunities for students, families, commuters, hybrid workers, bike enthusiasts, and those new to biking to bike anywhere. Pit stops offered refreshments, bike maps, and a free commemorative 2024 Bike Anywhere Day t-shirt.

In addition to Bike Anywhere Day, for the first time, SANDAG is introducing Bike Local Day on Saturday, May 18. This new event encourages families and individuals to bike in their communities and enjoy promotions from participating local businesses. Local businesses across the San Diego region can participate by offering specials and discounts to patrons who arrive on two wheels on Bike Local Day. 

Biking is a vital factor in the region’s transportation network. It alleviates traffic, reduces air pollution, and improves individual health. With nearly 1,800 miles of bikeways in the region, SANDAG continues to add improvements and is currently building three bikeways: Border to Bayshore, Bayshore Bikeway Barrio Logan, and the Pershing Bikeway, and expects to start construction on four more projects in the next year.
