Afterward, racers receive dining discounts at local favorites like Hennessey’s and The Field. Thursday, July 3 at 7 p.m. gaslamp.org

Ride the Bridge—Bike the Bay: Ever dream of pedaling over that soaring Coronado Bridge? Well, now you can, as this summer tradition, seven years strong, offers a scenic bayside ride and the rare opportunity to cross over the bay on your bike. The noncompetitive event ends at the Embarcadero Marina Park South, where food, entertainment, and a beer garden await. August 24. bikethebay.net

Summertime Strolls: During summer, it’s a seasonal crime to lock yourself to your desk during lunch. Why not break out and discover downtown’s distinct neighborhoods as part of a 30-minute guided stroll? The walks, which are sponsored by Scripps Health, happen twice a month on Friday at rotating locations. downtownsandiego.org/healthyscripps
