A Note from the Velodrome Director

San Diego Bicycle Club  
Jackie Price Dunn Memorial Ride
May 24th

Jackie Price Dunn was the first and only fatal accident at the San Diego Velodrome. Her death was devastating to our track community. Those that knew Jackie, knew she was a fierce competitor and we have had a memorial race night in her honor for the past 2 years. This is the third year we are celebrating the enthusiasm she brought to competitive track cycling.

PLEASE JOIN US NEXT TUESDAY 5/24/2016 at 6:00 pm for a special night of racing at the SAN Diego Velodrome! Find us under the lights at Morely field on our 333 meter cycling track. Parking is free and safe at the Bud Kerns Municipal pool - look for the velodrome just behind the pool.  2229 Morley Field Dr, San Diego, CA 92101

If you race - check this out! Registration: Juniors and Women featured!

Spectators!! We will conduct raffles and all the proceeds go to two San Diego Velodrome programs - one is the VeloYouth; this program assists at-risk teens by teaching them how to ride a track bike, race and develop team skills.  The other program is our junior racing development classes. These classes are free to the kids and this year there are many talented youth that have been invited to compete at the national championships!  Our SDBC coaches will be traveling to assist our SDBC juniors in competition. As you can imagine, travel funds are needed to help get the kids to the event. This year it is being held in Trexlertown, Pa., from July 25-31

Hope to see you there to watch and cheer or race - either will support our junior racers!

Co-Coordinator with Durwood Dunn and San Diego Velodrome Association

Jackie had a blog - and even wrote about a group ride with SDBC - check it out here!

A Note From The Bike Coalition Liaison


Safety Tip of the Week:

Let motorists know what we're doing... don't keep it a secret!

Every time we approach a left turn or merge, everyone, especially those in the back, should be signaling left early so motorists know what we're up to.  They can't read our minds and don't know our route.  Let them know well before we start moving over.  Too often the front starts moving left after a motorist has already committed to passing on the left.  It can be a mess, at best, dangerous at worst. The bigger the group, the sooner we should start signaling.

And when those in the back can see it's clear, say so.  And pass it on.  Do this right and the whole group moves over cohesively fairly quickly looking like a bunch of pros instead of a bunch of Freds like me.


Here is the link to the City of San Diego website to report street problems like the cracks, potholes and bumps on San Dieguito Road between Caminito Pacifica Trail and Winland Hills:

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

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

Mark your calendars for the Third Annual Salsa Ride at the Border on June 12, 2016!!!

Join hundreds of cyclists as we once again participate in this fine & worthy event, created by SDBC's Armando Valencia, and organized by the Foundation for the Children of the Californias on behalf of the Hospital Infantil de las Californias.

Funds raised at the event will be used for the Hospital’s ophthalmology efforts to prevent blindness and vision disorders in children. No child is turned away for inability to pay and the facility serves kids from both sides of the San Diego and Baja California mega-region.

The festive ride begins and ends at the “San Diego Outlets at the Border” in San Ysidro and offers a scenic passage through Otay Lakes, Chula Vista and the Eastlake area. Riders choose from either a metric century or metric half century route and all levels of riders are welcome to participate.

It is notable that a portion of the ride, for those doing the full metric century, goes through Otay Lakes and up Honey Springs, the same route taken by the Amgen TOC on Sunday, 5/15!

SDBC's Ralph Elliott will be once again be the MC (can't beat that!), and there will be finisher's medals, t-shirts, a wonderful post-ride meal, a beer garden (1 free coupon), a raffle, and a grand time had by all! For those riding the full metric century, the Honey Springs portion will be chip-timed. A most excellent event. Let's have another great showing from SDBC members!

Registration is open, and we are encouraging riders to register as soon as possible.
