A Note From The Bike Coalition Liaison

SDBC Logo Remember, SDBC membership includes membership in the San Diego County Bike Coalition which includes a number of benefits. See the new coalition website at

Bike The Bay is Sunday, August 23rd:

Safety Tip of the Week:
When you're using the full lane because it's too narrow for safe side-by-side sharing, it's helpful to just glance back and nod at anyone briefly stuck behind you.  That way they know you're not oblivious to their presence, and makes it less likely that they'll get angry and honk, or worse.  Nobody likes to feel ignored, and a friendly acknowledgment can go a long way towards nipping road rage in the bud.

Other Items Of Interest

The following items are not sponsored or endorsed by SDBC but may be of interest to the general membership.

Salsa Ride at the Border

The Salsa Ride on Sunday, 6/14, was a great success!

There were 415 registered riders, about half from Mexico and half from the US—a fantastic collaboration between our two countries. Many SDBC members participated and our own Ralph Elliott was at the microphone as Master of Ceremonies again this year.

Juan Carlos Vinolo, our Ride Leader, and wearer of bib #1, started out the first wave of riders at 7:00. Accompanying him were our celebrity riders, Raul Alcala, the first Mexican Tour de France racer and winner of two stages with bib #2, and USA Consul General in Tijuana Andrew Erickson, with bib #3. This was Juan Carlos' longest ride to date and he rode approximately 4 miles. A fantastic effort from someone who was so close to death just 10 months ago! The cycling community has come together in his behalf, with CAF supplying his hand–cycle, and members of SDBC and many others stepping up to support his comeback on the bike.

The weather was obliging and the route was a well-planned up & back route from San Ysidro to the climb up Honey Springs Road as the turn-around point and pièce de résistance. Rest stops, SAG support, finisher's medal, tee shirt, meal, beer garden, a band, raffle, and a photo booth complete with theatrical get-ups were all included.

A great time was had by all so don't miss next year's 3rd Annual Salsa Ride!

Visit the SDBC Blog page - Ride Reflections: "Salsa Ride at the Border" - to read more about the participants' experiences.
