Uptown Bicycles is a proud sponsor of the Pedal Ahead program. In Fact, our Normal Heights location is the official flagship community center for the Pedal Ahead movement!
What is Pedal Ahead?
Pedal Ahead is a two-year electric bicycle program by Rider Safety Visibility (RSV), a 501c3, in partnership with County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher to serve as an alternative to automobile transportation in County Supervisorial District 4. Through the adoption of electric bicycles, Pedal Ahead’s goal is to provide quality of life improvement for participants using the e-bikes for commuting and recreational activities. Through phased integration Pedal Ahead will create a network of individually operated e-bikes that are initially loaned and eventually owned by participants at the program’s two-year conclusion. The program will emphasize increasing e-bike ridership throughout the District, but with a specific focus for residents living in Chollas (92105, 92102, 92115), City Heights (92105), Encanto (92114), Linda Vista (92111), and Rolando and Redwood Village (92115, 92105). Riders will use a GPS technology app to track trip distances, and transportation and recreation patterns, which will be reported to RSV and updated regularly. There will be up to 400 e-bikes available before July 2021.
