BikeSD Endorsement Questions

1) What are your top 3 priorities for improving the biking experience in your Council District for residents and families?

2) San Diego’s Bicycle Master Plan needs updating and projects need prioritizing in order to create a complete bicycle network.

How would you propose to fund the full build-out of the bicycle network needed to achieve the Vision Zero goals and meet the Climate Action Plan mode share targets?

3) Transportation is the largest source of San Diego’s greenhouse gas emissions (55%). The City’s Climate Action Plan bicycle mode share goals are 6% of commuter trips by 2020 and 18% by 2035, from about 1% today. What steps will you take to make sure these goals are met or exceeded?

4) Safe bike lanes often face opposition due to slower road speeds or reduced street parking. How would you work with the community to address concerns without compromising safety or delaying bike infrastructure in the name of consensus?

5) Please share a memorable experience(s) you have of bicycling.
