Chair Nathan Fletcher, San Diego Gas & Electric Join Pedal Ahead Community Electric Bicycle Program to Celebrate Launch of SANDAG’s Bike Anywhere Week

SAN DIEGO — San Diego County Supervisor Chair Nathan Fletcher and Jeni Reynolds, San Diego Gas & Electric Director of Clean Transportation, joined with the Pedal Ahead community electric bicycle program to celebrate the launch of SANDAG’s Bike Anywhere Week on May 17 with a special e-bike demonstration and showcase promoting ridership and workforce development in the burgeoning San Diego County bicycling industry.

Launched in September 2020, the Pedal Ahead program is designed to provide electric bicycles for socially conscious residents of the 4th Supervisorial District. Since its inception, Pedal Ahead e-bike riders have logged over 87,000 miles, burned nearly 5.5 million calories and reduced GHGs by nearly 35,000kg through e-bike use. Pedal Ahead is deploying 400 electric bicycles under a unique “loan-to-own” program, with participants required to ride an average of five miles per day over the course of the two-year period, show proof of insurance that covers the liability, loss, theft and damage to their e-bike, and use a GPS technology app to track and report mileage and trip patterns to the non-profit Rider Safety Visibility for an e-bike study.

Pedal Ahead is a proud sponsor of SANDAG’s Bike Anywhere Week, May 16-22. Riders can take the pledge and pick up their free t-shirt, find a self-guided activity or join a virtual event. They can GO by BIKE to work, school, the store, the beach or just around their neighborhood, and win prizes along the way. For more information visit, https://www.icommutesd.com/events/bike-month
