BikeWalkSolana invites you to be part of the celebration with several fun and educational events throughout May! BikeWalkSolana thanks the City of Solana Beach for its award of Community Grant funding, making our Bike Month events possible.

Special Smart Cycling Class for Solana Beach Residents

Do you want to gain confidence in coexisting safely, legally, and courteously with vehicle traffic in Solana Beach and along the coast? Attend a Smart Cycling class held locally! The 3-hour Classroom Session will be held May 7th at La Colonia Park from 6-9pm. This prerequisite is followed by the 6-hour Road Session on May 11th, from 9am-3pm starting at a BikeWalkSolana member’s home. Special for Solana Beach residents only: your $50 fees for both classes will be refunded upon completion of the Road Session! Register NOW at as these classes have enrollment limits. This program is designed for adults, but teens aged 13-16 may attend, provided their parents also register and complete both sessions. E-bikes are welcome. For teens the shorter 3-hour City Cycling classes is recommended and will be offered in Solana Beach over the summer – stay tuned.
