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

Education

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.

Advocacy

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.

    Comment for Santa Ynez River Trail

    Santa Barbara County, Buellton, Solvang and the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments are working together to study the potential Santa Ynez River Trail that would provide a safe connection between Buellton and Solvang for pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians. 

    “The goal is not to decide on a final route now,” said Lauren Bianchi Klemann, public information manager for SBCAG. “We’re just gathering information that will be used in future decisions.”

    Currently, the only route between Buellton and Solvang for pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians is along the shoulders of two-lane Highway 246, where traffic generally flows at 55 mph but at times can become severely congested. During peak afternoon periods, as many as 2,000 vehicles an hour can travel that stretch of highway where there are no sidewalks, improved trails nor barriers to protect walkers, cyclists and horseback riders.
