We are ecstatic to be joining forces with iCommute and SANDAG in their efforts in promoting biking, by hosting a Bike to Work Day pit-stop. We hope through this effort, recognition is given to the necessity to create dedicated bike lanes in the College Area Business District.


Join thousands of people throughout the San Diego region as we GO by BIKE on Bike to Work Day – Thursday, May 18. 

Register for Bike to Work Day 2017. When you register for Bike to Work Day, you can stop by one of 100 pit stop locations throughout the San Diego region on May 18 from 6 – 9 a.m. to pick up a FREE t-shirt*, snacks, and encouragement.
This year our Bike to Work Day pit stop will be located outside of Duet Coffee, where we will be offering Bike tune ups, health related refreshments, Bike Apparel giveaways and raffles, and of course, lots of encouragement. Joining us will be some of our fantastic local businesses that will be enhancing and providing the offerings at our pit stop.

College Area Neighborhood Social


New SDSU social Banner

The College Area Business District is working with various College Area Neighborhood organizations to coordinate an evening social on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at Social Life Pizza (6011 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego CA 92115). The event is meant to celebrate the volunteer efforts of the community groups and SDSU’s Associated Students to make the College Area Neighborhoods a better place to live, work and shop.

With so many willing to volunteer their time and efforts, it can be important to bring those volunteers together to share ideas about the future of the College Area and continue to work cooperatively and in unison. The College Area’s future seems rather bright with all of the great volunteer work accomplished throughout the neighborhoods and we will be taking time to gather and celebrate all of these good works.

Please join the College Area Business District and our neighborhood collaborators in celebrating the volunteer efforts of the College Area. Tickets are only $15 with $5 of the ticket price being donated to one or more of the College Area organizations to support & continue their efforts.

Join us at Social Life Pizza and celebrate the amazing efforts of  all of our community members who make the College Area neighborhoods awesome.
