Bicycle Parking in San Diego

Dedicated parking for bicycle in San Diego beyond simple racks is a new thing here. This page will give the locations for all special bicycle parking in the City of San Diego. Some of the bike corrals have special “bike repair” stations with some tools and a pump. Racks with that setup will be marked with a (F).
