Bici Centro - where mobility and creativity meet! Santa Barbara's only D.I.Y. bike shop and thrift store - serving the community since 2007.
Connecting our Community is SBBIKE's Advocacy Campaign to make our streets safe and enjoyable for people of all ages to ride bikes on. Click here to learn about the routes we're working to improve.
SBBIKE serves all communities in Santa Barbara. Bici Centro is a bilingual shop, and the first week after the time change every fall SBBIKE gives out over 1,000 free lights to bikers on the South Coast so they can ride more safely home from work or school.
Safety and Education
Universal Cycling Education for all ages supports the development of safe and respectful road behaviors for both motorists and cyclists. SBBIKE offers both Youth and Adult classes, group rides, and online resources with an emphasis on street riding skills and safe bike handling.
SBBIKE offers bike valet at events year round and countywide. We've parked over 10,000 bikes since we've started, and haven't lost one. Whether at the SB Bowl, Buellton Brewfest, Earth Day Festival, and many more events, bike valet is free to those that choose to ride. Find out more about how you can volunteer to help, OR have SBBIKE provide bike valet at your next event!
SBBIKE is proud to fiscally sponsor SB Open Streets - Santa Barbara's premier health & wellness event - where for one day, a prominent street is closed to automobile traffic so people can enjoy the space and rethink the use of streets in City Planning.
Vision Zero is a road safety policy that aims to reduce traffic injuries for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians to zero. SBBIKE and COAST are spearheading this initiative. Learn more and support our efforts here!
