Day Trip to Santa Monica

Join us for this day trip to Santa Monica, exclusively available to SBBIKE members.

Last year we went to Portland; this year we’re planning a day trip to Santa Monica, to meet our colleagues, to sample their Breeze bikeshare, e-scooters, and ride their infrastructure.

Free vanpool

We’ll meet at the Santa Barbara AMTRAK Sta. It’s a quick trip to santa Monica, so travel light – leave your bike at home, 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 dense and flatter than Santa Barbara; they have bikeshare, bike lanes, scooters, dockless e-bikes, and scramble crosswalks. How did they get this done? Meet your peers at Santa Monica Spoke and learn from their experiences.

Lookin' for a lively pedestrian scene? After lunch we'll explore the Third Street Promenade, with an eye to duplicating the experience on State St.
