Santa Monica Spoke: Meet at the Colorado Center Park,
Entrance at corner of Broadway & 26th Street
Pre-CicLAvia Kick off party Coffee and breakfast,
8:00am party, roll out 9:15am. 

We are SUPER excited about this CicLAvia to the Sea! Instead of starting our usual feeder ride at the Santa Monica Pier Canon, this time we will start further east at the Colorado Center Park at Broadway and 26th (across from Helen’s Cycles). We will partner with our friends at Helen’s to host a Morning Pre-CicLAvia kick-off party! We’ll serve coffee and snacks, and we will have PRIZES! Helen’s is sponsoring a special CicLAvia prize raffle as a fund raiser for Santa Monica Spoke. YUP! you can have your coffee, snacks, win prizes, enjoy a day of Open Streets at CicLAvia and help Santa Monica Spoke all on the same day! SUPER RIGHT???
Our route will travel west on Broadway and go by the Santa Monica Bike Center, the Canon at the top of the Santa Monica Pier, and the Santa Monica Beach Bike Campus. You can meet us at any of those locations if you miss the kick off party. We would love to have a GREAT BIG GROUP as we travel to the Windward Circle Hub where we join the
CicLAvia Route!
