Join us for a day at the beach to learn more about Lyft Scooters and shared micro-mobility transportation options. Santa Monica Spoke’s certified instructors join the Lyft education and outreach team to be on hand to help boost your skills at this fun and free event!
Interested in learning more about scooters and road safety? Join Lyft and Santa Monica Spoke at the Santa Monica Bike Campus Sunday, November 10th for next scooter safety event.
Find out more about scooters and shared micro-mobility options. Learn the rules of the road, your rights and responsibilities, add new safety skills and techniques in a safe off road environment.
*Scooters are allowed on the campus for this event only. The beach is an e-scooter NO RIDE ZONE.
We’ll also be giving out helmets and refreshments for riders!
Join Santa Monica Spoke and the City of Santa Monica for Kidical Mass Halloween Ride. We will take an “all ages” ride* around the neighborhood North of Wilshire on this regular family friendly event. Prizes and giveaways at the park when we return!
Schedule. 9::00am – 12:00pm Don’t miss the fun pre-ride activities! – Check-in, Morning Snacks – (coffee, bagels, juice, and more!), Bike Safety Checks, Helmet Decorating and games! – ALL AGES Family Ride – Prizes, plus post ride activities and more snacks after the ride!
* Children must be accompanied and are the responsibility of their parents. Bikes should be in good working condition. Free Safety Checks on site for minor adjustments/repairs.

Santa Monica Spoke joined CalBike and 80+ organizations in support in support of Complete Streets Bill SB 127. Collectively we believe that local streets should include safe space for people who walk, bike or scoot, not just fast-moving cars. We have support from major cities as well as rural/suburban, along with endorsements from elected officials. Many of you have been posting, retweeting, blogging, and putting out action alerts. This has resulted in hundreds of calls and nearly 2500 emails to the Governor’s office.
If you agree, please email Governor Newsom and ask him to sign the Complete Streets Bill, SB 127. This bill will require Caltrans to serve the interests of all road users when it repairs or repaves local streets it controls.
Caltrans has resisted this bill. Governor Newsom needs to hear from you that you want Complete Streets today!
SB 127 has been sitting on the Governor’s desk waiting for a signature (and attention among all the rest of the headliners) – at this point we know he is hearing about the issue and may be briefed as early as tomorrow. But the Caltrans fiscal impact issue still looms. While Calbike and Coalition partners have provided information to counter the Caltrans inflated estimate and the Dept of Finance flawed analysis, we still have convincing to do, especially pointing to the degree of need.
Time for a big push directed at the Governor. There are multiple posts on the CalBike twitter page you can retweet, or create your own as some partners have done (thanks, Transform!). Please tag @CAgovernor @GavinNewsom and @ScottWiener, and #SB127 and #completestreets.
Tell Governor Newsom to sign SB 127, the Complete Streets Bill.
The more people who email Newsom, the more he’ll know that the people of California are holding him to account when he says “If anyone is wondering if climate change is real, come to California.”
(Feel free to customize the email with your own experience of riding and walking on Caltrans streets!)
