Decobike Stations in Pacific Beach.

The Pacific Beach Town Council, DiscoverPB and The Pacific Beach Planning Group began community meetings with Decobike over a year ago as a directive from the City of San Diego.

Decobike proposed a number of stations that removed street parking and stations directly in front or near local bike shops.   We were able to relocate some stations and also proposed other workable locations.

In early June Decobike had another meeting to propose  three additional 6 foot by 40 foot stations directly on the Boardwalk.  Station92A

All community groups were opposed to these locations.  We need the community to help oppose placing commercial bikes stations on our boardwalk. The coummunity should also support our local bike shops.

Please contact Lori Zapf  and Tom Landry who is heading up this program for the City of San Diego to voice your concerns about putting Neighborhoods First.

Mike Gotch Memorial Bike and Pedestrian Bridge Dedication

Hundreds of people attended the Mike Gotch Memorial Bike and Pedestrian Bridge dedication event last week, hosted by Councilmember Kevin Faulconer. The bridge now allows anyone to circumnavigate the entire Mission Bay without entering any major street.

The 260′ bridge connects N. Mission Bay Dr. with Pacific Beach Drive and eliminates the need for bicyclists to traverse along the very busy Grand Ave. as they are exploring our Mission Bay Park.

The bridge was dedicated to a much-loved man in Mike Gotch. Former California Assemblymember and San Diego Councilmember Gotch was a long-time supporter of everything San Diego, especially the entire Mission Bay Park system. Many of his family was present to share in honoring the memory of Mike for his service.

Members of the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition came out in the hundreds, eagerly waiting to cross the bridge on their bicycles. They also exclaimed the need for San Diego to continue developing projects such as this to improve the bike-friendliness of San Diego.

Engineering services were provided by TYLIN INTERNATIONAL of San Diego.

It is notable that Councilmember Faulconer provided complete planning and oversight of this project, beginning many years ago while serving on the Mission Bay Park Committee. Also notable was that he did so on time and under the $2.9 million budget! Thank you once again Councilmember Faulconer.
