Bicycle Planning

Improving mobility options and safety through the enhancement of the bicycle environment.


The City of San Diego is committed to supporting bicycling as a form of mobility and recreation. As part of the City's long-term vision contained in the General Plan, the City supports the planning and development of bicycle-friendly development projects, streets, and neighborhoods for both commuter and recreational riders. To this end, the City has adopted a Citywide Bicycle Master Plan.

The Bicycle Master Plan serves as a policy document to guide the development and maintenance of bicycle facilities throughout the City. The policies in the Bicycle Master Plan address all issues related to San Diego's bikeways such as planning, community involvement, utilization of existing resources, facility design, safety and education, funding and more.


The City annually applies for and receives grant funding to design and construct bicycle facility improvements throughout the City.
