I didn’t know what C2 Education was or what Mixte planned to do with it, but I was eager to find out. To share the excitement with my new coworkers, I realized I needed to dream big.

Should San Diego be one of the top cities for biking in the country? Yes. With 70 and sunny littering the “weather” reports, a remarkable coastline and some of the best sightseeing in the country, San Diego seems to have a natural place at the top of the bike-friendly-city list.

Is San Diego one of the top cities for biking in the country? Unfortunately, far from it.

Mixte went to Washington, D.C. with the San Diego County Bike Coalition for the nation’s premiere bike advocacy conference, The National Bike Summit, to find out why and how to fix it.

Environmental justice, social justice: Two terms that most people wouldn’t think of when they think of San Diego, yet two terms that define a movement of people in our backyards.Two terms I’ve become incredibly familiar with since I began working with Environmental Health Coalition almost three years ago.

The day for the first bike commute finally came. Google maps said it would take an hour and fifteen minutes, but I decided 45 would be plenty. It was mostly downhill, and hearing the ride described as, “really not that bad” over and over again, I figured I could beat the average time. I wasn’t worried.
