Bike commuter turned bike tourist Jeffrey Tanenhaus has ridden a NYC bike share bike across the US and will end his cross country tour in Santa Monica, this Saturday January 23rd, 3:00pm at the Santa Monica Pier.
We are planning to welcome Jeffrey to the West Coast with a ride along the last leg of his journey with City of Santa Monica’s own Breeze Bike Share, presented by Hulu. Together we will ride with Jeffrey from Colorado Center Park to the Santa Monica Pier. There we will celebrate the end his journey with a finish line ribbon cutting (3:00pm) at the iconic end of Route 66 atop of the Santa Monica Pier followed by a Handlebar Happy Hour at Ristorante al Mare.
Though none would argue a public bike share bike is inteneded or would be most people’s choice for a long-distance bike ride, Jeffrey decided to ride the bike that had given him so much joy commuting from his home to work and for his daily errands in New York City – promoting the versatility and benefits of healthy, active transportation and contributing to a less congested healthier city.
We will meet at Colorado Center Park, 26th & Broadway at 2:30 and ride together on the last leg of Jeffrey Tanenhaus Countri Bike tour to the end of Route 66 at the top of the Santa Monica Pier. There we will celebrate with a Checker Board / Finish Line Ribbon Cutting!
Followed by Handlebar Happy Hour at:
– Ristorante al Mare
– 250 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, CA 90401
