Along for the Ride: A Century of Biking in Coronado

"Along for the Ride: A Century of Biking in Coronado", is a video highlighting Coronado's unique bike community and culture. Bicycling in Coronado is a popular activity, in part due to the city's mild climate, comprehensive street grid, small town feel and numerous recreational opportunities. In 2011, Coronado adopted a Bicycle Master Plan to provide a vision, set of goals, and potential projects designed to enhance the City's streets to be more comfortable, safe, and inviting for people walking and biking, regardless of age and ability. In 2018, the City adopted its first Active Transportation Plan and Complete Streets Strategy.

Approximately 5.5% of Coronado’s residents bike to work, a rate which is higher than the rate for the City of San Diego (1%) and the County wide rate (0.7%). The City, recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, offers transportation options such as the free commuter ferry service and Summer Shuttle that accommodates bicycles. Coronado’s bicycle commuter rates tend to be utilitarian in nature, shorter “lifestyle” trips that occur on a daily basis such as bike rides to and from school, the store, and the beach. Bicycling improves public health, reduces traffic congestion, reduces emissions, and enhances economic growth and in Coronado it can be fun!


The video will screen from May through early June on the Coronado Community Channel, through outlets at the local schools, on the City's social media channels (YouTube and Facebook) and links will be placed on Instagram and Twitter.

The City of Coronado received a GO by BIKE Mini-Grant from SANDAG, part of National Bike Month efforts to support biking as a daily transportation choice. For more information on Bike Month activities, visit sandag.org/bikemonth.
