San Diego Bike Share

DECOBIKE recently installed its first bike-sharing station on E Street at Sixth Avenue in San Diego. The station has 15 bicycles. Bicycle-sharing programs have increased in popularity in major U.S. cities as well as on a global scale in the last few years; however, this is the first program in San Diego. DECOBIKE works in conjunction with the city of San Diego and plans to launch 1,809 locations across downtown, beach areas and San Ysidro.

How It Works
Grab your credit card and head over to any of the bike stations. Rent your bike, ride it for the amount of time you bought, and then drop it off at any location (doesn’t have to be the pickup location). Choose from two rental options: hourly or membership. The hourly version lets you keep the bike for the duration of the rental period. The membership option lets you make unlimited rides on a monthly basis. Membership is further divided by unlimited 30-minute rides or unlimited 60-minute rides. Timing is recorded each time a bike is docked at a rental station. If your bike is not returned within the time limit, additional usage fees apply.

Pricing:
Hourly
• ½ hour: $5
• 1 hour: $7
• 2 hours: $12
Membership
• 30-minute unlimited $99 annually or $20 monthly
• 60-minute unlimited $199 annually or $30 monthly

Dodger Stadium

Since opening its gates in 1962, Dodger Stadium has hosted more than 147 million fans. The stadium has seen improvements, upgrades and additions over its 52 seasons, and remains one of Los Angeles’ most well-known landmarks. Whether you’re new to L.A. or you’ve lived here for years, a tour of this cathedral of baseball should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Touring Dodger Stadium isn’t like a normal trip to the ballpark to watch the game — it’s a whole new experience. The tour lets fans go truly behind the scenes to some of the most restricted areas of the stadium. The tour is about 80 to 90 minutes and typically includes a trip down to the field, a visit to the Dodgers’ dugout, a look at the Lexus Dugout Club and a walk through the Vin Scully Press Box.
Stadium tours take place at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. when a day game is scheduled, or on national holidays.
Exclusive pregame tours are available prior to the start of a game on certain dates for $30 to game-day ticketholders. To attend a pregame tour, you must have a game ticket and a tour ticket. This abridged tour lasts approximately 45 minutes.

When Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul accepted his Best Supporting Actor Emmy last August, he more than remembered to thank his wife; he caused her website to crash. “Thank you for dedicating your life to spreading kindness across the world,” gushed the actor. “If you guys don’t know what she does, look up Kind Campaign.” Well, thousands did.
