Category: What's New

Bike to Work day comes to the Village on Friday, May 20th.  Cyclists participating in Bike to Work Day are invited to visit one of seven “pit stop” locations as they pass through the City of Carlsbad from 6 to 9 a.m.  Village locations include Swami’s Cycling Club (Carlsbad Boulevard southbound at Ponto Beach) and the seawall at Frazee Beach (Carlsbad Boulevard and Pine Avenue.)  Other city locations include:

The Zone 5 Park along Faraday Avenue

24 Hour Fitness, Palomar Airport Road at College Boulevard

Velofix,  Palomar Airport Road and Carlsbad Boulevard

ViaSat, 6155 El Camino Real

Lululemon Athletica, 1923 Calle Barcelona

Bike to Work Day, organized regionally by SANDAG, promotes bicycling as a healthy, economical and environmentally friendly commute choice. While supplies last, cyclists will receive snacks, beverages and other giveaways at the pit stop. The first 35 visitors to each of the seven Carlsbad pit stops will receive a $5 coupon good for the month of May at the restaurants at the Island at Carlsbad food court.

Ongoing improvements to city streets to install new bike lanes or widen existing bike lanes continue to make Carlsbad more bike-friendly. These improvements increase transportation options and opportunities for healthy recreation as well as benefitting business and tourism in our community.
