Oscar Tavera

Oscar Tavera is a mechanical engineer at Solar Turbines located on Harbor Drive. Relocating from Orlando to San Diego changed his perspective on how biking was not just a hobby but could be the solution to climate change and a healthier lifestyle. He has made the choice to live in the Mission Hills/Hillcrest area and uses his bike for most of his daily trips. He has been active in supporting local affordable housing projects, improving biking infrastructure, and growing the walkability of the city. He balances his casual bike riding with triathlon training, trail running, and neighborhood walks with his miniature pig. Oscar joined the board of BikeSD in 2020.
