WHAT: Hundreds of women of all ages, races and abilities will grab their bikes and pedal for the inaugural Women Ride IB.

In the morning, hundreds of women will divide into two bike riding groups: some will take a casual ride on the roads from Imperial Beach to National City and back, while others will enjoy the mountain bike trails from Imperial Beach through Otay Valley Regional Park and back. Both bike rides will conclude with a festival showcasing local, women-owned businesses at the newly opened Bikeway Village in Imperial Beach.

All proceeds from Women Ride IB benefit the San Diego County Bike Coalition and its mission to protect and advocate for the rights of all people on bikes countywide.

WHY: According to the San Diego County Bike Coalition, Women Ride IB is an opportunity for the female bicycling community in San Diego to grow and celebrate each other. Brought from concept to fruition by a committee of more than a dozen women who ride bicycles in San Diego County, the ride was devised by women, for women.

DecoBike Pulls Out of San Diego Beaches

Super interesting article on News 8 today.

The City is removing is removing several DecoBike stations- 15 to be exact- in beach areas and will be relocating the stations to the urban core. I've never been particularly into DecoBike. I think they're a total ripoff, it shouldn't be cheaper to catch an Uber than it is to ride a bike, but maybe someday this City will get its shit together.
