Who we are

The Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition is a countywide organization with the mission to promote bicycling for safe transportation and recreation

We envision Santa Barbara County as a great place for everyday, year-round bicycling — for transportation and recreation — that is safe and accessible for everyone. We will work toward building healthy and vibrant communities with clean air and low-stress, safe streets.

What we do


Reach people of all ages and abilities to teach how to get around Santa Barbara County safely and confidently by active and sustainable transportation and transform sedentary habits by encouraging physical activities in the schools and promoting healthy lifestyle to the community.

Building Community

Assist, mentor and empower all bicycle riders by managing affordable educational Do-It-Yourself community centers (3 Bici Centros) in a multicultural and bilingual environment and create impactful participatory and volunteering opportunities to our supporting members and the wider community all year round.


Address inequities in transportation planning by promoting bicycling for safe transportation and recreation to create healthy, sustainable and equitable communities in Santa Barbara County.

Collaborative Efforts

Build and foster strong partnerships with local entities to win broad support for healthier, more sustainable and equitable communities in Santa Barbara county.

    Bike to Nature is a collaborative effort between SBBIKE/Safe Routes to School and the Wilderness Youth Project (WYP) to offer an outdoor program to small groups of students who will use a bicycle as a mode of transportation to access and connect with nature. This healthy, educational and fun program will run for the entire school year alternating cohort A and cohort B each week. Students will bring their own helmet and a bike in working condition. Limited number of loaner bikes available.

    Contact SBBIKE Education Director if you want to bring a biking program to your youth during or after school hours.
