I have Global Entry. If the answer is specific to the port of entry, then I'm mostly interested in the ports of entry in San Diego.

  • Can you, reasonably, safely reach that borderpoint on bicycle on both sides of the border?

  • @Willeke yes from Mexican side. Unsure for the US side. Commented Feb 3, 2022 at 9:08

I don't know the answer for sure, and can't find anything online, however I will make these three observations:

  1. Your vehicle must be registered with TTP to use the SENTRI car lanes. I don't believe you can register a bicycle in SENTRI (needs registration details)
  2. The US side of the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports-of-entry is freeway, where you cannot ride your bike.
  3. You CAN take your bike through the pedestrian border crossing (many do every day) and there is SENTRI/Global Entry access to bypass the long line of pedestrians at both ports-of-entry.
