Holiday Lights Walk & Roll

holiday_lights_eng_copy.png

Where are the best Christmas lights in Santa Barbara County? After sunset, put on some good walking shoes, grab a flashlight and go explore your neighborhood by foot. You'll be happy to see that this year many residents have decorated their home. YAY, it's FREE and your kids will LOVE it! If you are more adventurous, do a ABC quick check on your bicycle, make sure that you have a charged white bike light in the front and a red one in the back, grab your helmet and enjoy some fresh air while riding to another neighborhood. Popular areas include downtown Santa Barbara, the Westside, Veronica Springs, the Eastside (the Miracle on 1209 East Quinientos), 7544 Carlisle Way in Goleta... Check the FREE Santa Barbara Holiday Light Tour.

Santa Maria has a contest for Holiday Lights.

Julefest in Solvang is on the calendar. Happy Holidays! Have fun!

Ride leaders are needed and will be trained!

Everybody is feeling the "Covid and Zoom fatigue" and is looking for some fun and safe activities during lunch, after zoom schooling and during the week-ends to stay physically and mentally healthy. Let's go for a walk or a ride around the neighborhood: follow the arrows! Read last week news coverage HERE

The PE teacher at Harding University Partnership School recruited cohorts of students (age 4-11) to participate in an after-school bike club (M-Th: 3:30-4:30pm). The bike boom is happening in many neighborhoods, maybe in yours? What about hosting a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Halloween Bike Ride? (bilingual flyer at the bottom)

SBBIKE and COAST are looking for ride ambassadors/leaders to join the momentum and fun time! A FREE 45-minute, online refresher class is required before you join us.
Please attend the FREE Virtual Confident City Cycling on Monday, October 26th at 6:00pm.

Construction begins on Modoc Bike Path

Screen_Shot_2020-10-13_at_1.52.45_PM.png  Photo when project is completed.

C.A. Rasmussen has installed temporary traffic control along Modoc Road in order to provide enough buffer for the multiuse path construction activities. The lanes have been shifted to the north, and the middle turning lane has been temporarily removed along Modoc Road. Modoc Road now has one travel lane (motor vehicle) plus one class 2 bike lane in each direction. The temporary lane configuration will last approximately until mid-February of 2021. Vehicular speeds have been reduced to 35 mph within the construction zone, and drivers are advised to be alert and proceed cautiously within the corridor.

For the next several weeks, C.A. Rasmussen will begin demolition and vegetation removal starting at Calle De Los Amigos and work their way eastward towards Las Positas Road. Work will include grinding of pavement, removal of hardscape, grading, excavation for retaining walls, and tree removals.

Beginning Wednesday, October 13, 2020, there will be intermittent closures of the intersections of Calle De Los Amigos, Ferrara Way, Palermo Drive, and Veronica Springs Road during work hours for the pavement grinding work, which will last for up to two days at each location.
