An overnight educational excursion for avid bicycle advocates
Not a bike ride, although we’ll ride bikes often
This will be a mini Advocacy Conference in Santa Monica, exclusively available to SBBIKE members.
Learn Bicycle Best Practices
Last year we went to Portland; this year we’re planning an overnight field trip to Santa Monica, to meet our colleagues, to sample their Breeze bikeshare and Bird scooters, and ride their infrastructure.
We'll take the train
We’ll take the AMTRAK Surfliner to Los Angeles then transfer to light rail to Santa Monica. It’s a quick trip, so travel light. Leave your bike at home, the train only accommodates 6 anyway – we’ll rent bikes instead.
Who can participate?
This field trip is open to all SBBIKE members; you can join here.
Santa Monica Spoke
Santa Monica is flat and it's more dense than Santa Barbara; they have bikeshare, bike lanes, scooters, and scramble crosswalks. How did they get this done? Meet your peers at Santa Monica Spoke and learn from their experiences.
Friday night program
We’ll have pizza. We’ll have a local guest speaker. We’ll have prizes.
Lookin' for a lively night scene? After dinner we'll explore the Third Street Promenade, with an eye to duplicating the experience on State St.
Before you go
Download the Breeze Bike Share app so you can rent a Hulu bikeshare bike.

Safety and convenience: how would a Scramble crosswalk suit Cabrillo at State Street?
