Breeze Bike Share is turning 2!
We’ve got lots of reasons to celebrate, together.
In 2015 Santa Monica launched LA County’s first bike share system, Breeze.
Since then together —
- We’ve ridden nearly 1.3 million miles!
- We’re almost 78,000 Breezers
- We’ve ridden over 607,000 trips
- We’ve biked around the world 51 times
- We’ve burned the calories in 22,502 pizzas, and
- We’ve prevented greenhouse gas emissions from 401 cars driven for one year from entering the atmosphere.
We are proud of all we have accomplished together in our first two years and hope you’ll come celebrate the part you’ve played in the success on a community bike ride. Ride Breeze or your own steed – all are welcome!

Special thanks to our partner The Albright!
The relaxed seaside setting is a perfect complement to the delicious menu that reflects a commitment to sustainably caught seafood, locally sourced ingredients, as well as an extensive craft beer and California wine program. The Morenas and their team at The Albright have been trailblazers in sustainability and greening efforts. This year, The Albright is celebrating their 40th anniversary, solidifying their title as the longest running restaurant on the Santa Monica Pier. CONGRATULATIONS!
About the Mayor’s Ride:
Biking (AND WALKING) is better with friends! The monthly Mayor Ride was born last year 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 – This free local event has continued with monthly community bike rides and walks with Mayor Ted Winterer and City Staff since January with a different theme monthly. Come meet the Mayor, City staff, and your neighbors while enjoying the Santa Monica sunshine!
We look forward to seeing you there!
