As a reminder, bikes, as always, are free. Media events will be held at 7:10 a.m. and at 7:50 a.m. by the Coronado Ferry Landing Pier with leaders from Coronado, San Diego, Flagship, transit officials, representatives from the Navy, commuters and local community organizations who support alternative transportation.
