Riding on Campus

When riding on campus you are required to only ride on the designated path shown above. 

When riding on campus you do not have the right of way.  Pedestrians always have the right of way.

Be courteous to others and aware of how you riding could impact the safety of others on campus.  Even though you may be in control of your bike or skateboard you cannot assume the pedestrians near you are aware of your presence.

Riding on City Streets

The San Diego Municipal Code and the Calfornia Vehicle Code require that all bicyclists and skateboarders obey the law. 

When riding a bike on city streets you must obey all California vehicle laws.  This means stopping at stop signs and riding with the flow of traffic.

When riding a skateboard on city streets you must ride only on the sidewalks.  Riding in the roadways is a misdemeanor.
