Bike Ride with the Mayor and CalBike
January 20 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
CELEBRATION: A Year of Monthly Rides & Walks with the Mayor
This will be our Anniversary Ride with the Mayor & CalBike!
…. but there’s more!
Not only will the Mayor and the City of Santa Monica Mobility Team be there, but we are excited we will again be joined by the Board and staff of the California Bicycle Coalition (who joined us on our very 1st Ride with the Mayor)…
But also another special guest – Jeffrey Tanenhaus of Countri Bike!!
You may remember Jeffrey and his Epic Cross County Adventure on a Citi Bike – We welcomed Jeffrey and his Countri Bike with a Finish Line Celebration two years ago at the Santa Monica Pier.
On this Anniversary Ride we have a Trifecta! Santa Monica Mayor / CalBike / Countri Bike
— followed by a HandleBar Happy Hour “Brunch” #HBHH+B
Join Santa Monica Spoke, Mayor Ted Winterer, City of Santa Monica Mobility Team, California Bicycle Coalition and Jeffrey Tanenhaus for this 3x’s the FUN CELEBRATION!
Surely to be a day of fun and excitement, you’ll experience some of Santa Monica’s amazing bike infrastructure, maybe hear about new projects and if you like, chat with the Mayor, City Management or staff, CalBike or Jeffrey on a socially paced bike tour of Santa Monica to BRUNCH! The ride is around 5 miles but still TBD – mostly on streets with bike lanes and is planned to be about an hour in length. We end our ride at a yet to be determined location for a no host HBHH Brunch Social.
This event will be updated as venues is confirmed – if you are RSVP’d you will get an email notification through Eventbrite when location is confirmed – VERY SOON!
January 2017 we led Santa Monica’s first official “Ride with the Mayor” — Mayor Ted Winterer, City management, staff and The California Bicycle Coalition (CalBike) — board and staff took a wonderful bike tour of Santa Monica. We are so happy CalBike is joining us again this year on the anniversary of our very first Ride with the Mayor!
Our local leader Cynthia Rose brings it all together as she is not only the Director of Santa Monica Spoke, she is also a Vice President on the CalBike board of directors as well as a former board member of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) and the primary catalyst for LACBC’s Local Chapters with Santa Monica Spoke being the founding chapter way back in 2009.
