August Ride with the Mayor: Community Garden Tour
August 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This month, Join us for another Ride with Mayor on a tour of Santa Monica’s Community Gardens. We’ll wind up at one of our #BikeLocalSM favorites, Bareburger on Main Street for an extended HandleBar Happy Hour #HBHH.
Come meet us, Mayor Ted Winterer, City staff, and your neighbors while enjoying a fun bike ride in the breezy Santa Monica sunshine! The ride will be about 7 miles and should take about 1.5 hours. The plan is to leave from City Hall just after 5:30pm. The planned route is HERE.
Bring your own bike, helmet, lock & water bottle. Family friendly – however children should be capable of street riding or in an appropriate child seat or trailer.
No bike? No problem! Just grab a Breeze Bike Share!
The monthly Mayor Ride was born at the Breeze One year Anniversary Event with a proclamation from our City Manager Rick Cole. We led the 1st Ride with the Mayor which was joined by the California Bicycle Coalition Board of Directors in January 2017 – the event has continued as promised with a different theme monthly. Stay up to date on events all over Santa Monica and the Westside at SMSpoke.org, and here on our calendar. You can also check out Santa Monica City Planning on Facebook
