Remember this Noozhawk post? Santa Barbara Receives $15M State Grant For Bike, Pedestrian Path on Modoc, Las Positas Roads.
That's a chunk of change. It's also a beautiful bike path, if we get to build it...
But if Prop 6 passes we can forget about any new bike paths. That's because all present and future bike lanes are paid for with gas tax funds generated from SB1. Prop 6 is out to repeal SB1 – it's a step backwards for our community, our economy, and our active transportation goals, like adding more bike lanes.
SBBIKE Outreach Coordinator Myrna Muñoz looks forward to growing the wealth of diversity that helps make SBBIKE such a benefit to the community.
In a huge win at Solvang City Council this week, the Sunny Fields Spur went from an idea to a state grant application.
This year, the theme for the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival is 'Inspire.' When SBBIKE provides free bike valet to everyone attending the festival, we inspire more people to ride their bikes. With more bikes and less cars, traffic is alleviated, people are happier, and parking is a cinch. Over the course of two days, we park over 1,000 bicycles in our corner of Alameda Park. It takes many volunteers to make it successful and fun. You'll get to see all sorts of sweet bikes, get fed, and you'll get an SBBIKE T-shirt. Come lend us a hand!
