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.

Meet Diana Musacchio

Leer en español

You may have noticed some changes on the website and even the E-blast. A couple months ago, an amazing organizer, communicator and translator, joined our team. She had previously been a volunteer in various programs including Bike Valet (with me) at the SB Bowl. It’s about time we introduce her. Diana Musacchio was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, lived in many different countries, and came to Santa Barbara to attend Brooks. Immediately after graduation, she began to teach in the Graphic Design, Media Arts and Computer Applications departments at SBCC. And now, here she is at SBBIKE helping with the website, technology, online classes, translating to Spanish and so much more. From one Diana to another, welcome!
