The City of San Diego Bike Program installs bike racks in the public right-of-way for businesses to encourage bicycling to daily activities such as shopping, riding to school and commuting.
City bike racks, installation and maintenance are provided by the City for approved locations. Bike racks can’t be installed in the following locations:
- Narrow sidewalks
- On private property
- On asphalt, grass, gravel, brick or other surfaces that will not allow secure rack installation. Bike racks need to be secured to a concrete surface.
- Residential addresses
- Bus stops
- Locations that have conflicts with storm drains, parked vehicles and utility boxes
If you know of a business that would benefit from having a bike rack, please ask the business owner to submit a request in the form below.
Business Owners: To request a bike rack for the right-of-way (sidewalk) in front of your business, please provide the information required below. Your request will be evaluated by City staff and you will receive a notification of the evaluation within 60 days.
