You may have noticed Del Mar has recently become more bicycle and pedestrian friendly. There are new marked bike lanes and new sidewalks in town. The City has added bike racks in the downtown area, and a bicycle pump with repair tools next to City Hall.
TPAC (Traffic and Parking Advisory Committee) has made bicycles and trails a priority. The City is in the planning stages to add new crosswalks and new bike lanes. The City recently applied for an $80,000 grant for a cycling and trails master plan. But, there is much more to do.
Would you like to help? A group named BikeWalk Del Mar has been formed as a citizens group to assist the city. BikeWalk Del Mar will be part of the San Diego Regional BikeWalk Alliance that includes Carlsbad, Coronado, Chula Vista, Encinitas, Escondido, Oceanside, San Diego, and Solana Beach.
BikeWalk Del Mar will serve as a voice of the citizens to assist the City in fostering cycling and walking in Del Mar. Our goals include safer streets and safer pedestrian access.
We welcome anyone who may have an interest or who may want to contribute their thoughts or ideas on cycling and walking in Del Mar.
For more information, please contact a BikeWalk Del Mar member: Julie Allison, Robin Crabtree, Bill Michalsky, or
