North Park Main Street and the North Park Farmers’ Market (Thursdays, 3-7PM on Herman Ave. between University & North Park Way) celebrate San Diego’s cycling community during “National Bike Month” this May. There’s never been a better time to get your ‘fixie fix,’ burning calories while saving money and gas. Whether you’re wheeling into work every morning, or just cruising around the neighborhood, North Park is a great place to put the pedal to the metal…

And then the other pedal…

No matter if you’re a novice biker or a recent transplant to America’s Finest City, getting started is as easy as, well, riding a bike! North Park’s main drags, University Ave. and 30th St. sport 7 DecoBike rental stations, with 5 additional stations available as you head south on 30th, Fern St., and 28th St. through South Park and Golden Hill. We’ve confirmed that their Free Helmet for new members promotion is still active, so make sure you’re cycling safe no matter if you rent or own.

If you’re ready to buy, we recommendNorth Park Bikes at 3022 North Park Way, just a few blocks from our weekly farmers’ market. Enjoy their wide selection of new and used bikes, as well as repair services, and don’t forget to get a basket installed for your Thursday market haul!

Support for the cycling community is also reflected in the many bike-friendly businesses throughout North Park. Park your bike at the bike racks outsideWaypoint Public and Toronado, both of which offer supplemental bike racks in addition to the many installed by the city. If you’re stopping by Modern Times Beer, take advantage of their sidewalk bike repair kit for a fill of air after you fill your growler. NPFMsponsor Urban Solace, weekly market shoppers Tiger!Tiger! (hi, chefs!) and many more local businesses also encourage cyclists with discounts and programs. For more information visit http://sdbikecommuter.com.
