We had so many great local pitstops on BTWD last year, along with great Bike Month promotions. We have new participants already signing up this year putting us on track to have yet another great Bike Month 2019 in Santa Monica! We invite any local business, individual or organization to join us celebrating by hosting a BTWD Pit Stop or Bike Month Special Promotion!

We can’t guarantee availability of Metro BTWD pit stop swag* – specially if you sign up after May 10th. We will provide local materials and will make the trip to Metro LA to pick up any available swag* they are offering for our local registered pit stops so hosts will be able to pick up all of the free materials and any swag* from our office in downtown Santa Monica. Local pick up of our materials and the BTWD Metro swag* will be coordinated during the week of May 13th with registered hosts.
