BikeSD and The Climate Hub on Earth Day

BikeSD member Elizabeth Mayer rolled over to The Climate Hub press conference on April 22 in front of the University Christian Church. The press conference, on Earth Day, emphasized the shared commitment of The Climate Hub members and focused on the need to support solar energy.

The Climate Hub’s Tara Hammond coordinated the event that included speakers Council member Stephen Whitburn (City of San Diego District 3), Rev. Dr. Caleb J. Lines (Senior Minister, University Christian Church) and representatives from Climate Hub members San Diego Green New Deal, Hammond Climate Solutions, San Diego350 as well as other members of the community.

BikeSD is grateful to be a member of the Climate Hub and to support this event as we continue to make San Diego the world-class bicycling city we know it can be.

We will continue to do this by advocating for safer streets and greater cycling infrastructure that invites our neighbors to choose to ride their bicycles. If we all exchange even just one car trip with a bicycle ride – we’re making strides toward our region’s climate goals.

With greater cycling infrastructure such as what BikeSD’s board president Kyle Heiskala and Stephan Vance (Chair of San Diego Bike Coalition), expressed support for in their Opinion: Bikeways Are Needed to Safely Introduce San Diegans to Bicycle Commuting, more riding is the future.
