SBBIKE's End of Year Appeal

Dearest SBBIKE Supporter!

Second grader Albert Varelas has a degenerative muscle disease which he was told would make bicycling impossible. But thanks to the insight of his teachers at Tunnel Elementary and to Bici Santa Maria’s Ken Dahmen’s work on a GoFundMe campaign and a grant, Albert is now cruising on a specially designed bike alongside his friends. His smiles, and hundreds of others, are our greatest reward.

Introducing the Interim

unnamed_(1).jpg

We are so excited to have David Landecker join the team to help keep us moving forward, especially through this season of transition and giving (End of Year Appeal TBA). David, a 40 year resident and activist in Santa Barbara, has been hired as the Interim Executive Director of SBBIKE. He has a long history of experience in non-profit work including serving on the boards of directors and as an officer of more than a dozen local organizations, and as the Executive Director of the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics and the Environmental Defense Center.

“The prospect of maintaining and building upon the great work of Ed France with SBBIKE was tempting enough to lure me out of retirement,” said David. “The Board was looking for someone who could step in immediately to support SBBIKE’s amazing staff, assess its future needs and opportunities, and facilitate the identification and a successful hand off to their next E.D. I felt that the job description sounded like me. So I’m honored and excited to take on the task.”

Combining Forces

Leer en español

For more than a decade, the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition (SBBIKE) has worked cooperatively with COAST (Coalition for Sustainable Transportation) in the public schools of Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria. Although SBBIKE has developed its own programs for teaching kids and adults throughout Santa Barbara County to ride bicycles safely, COAST has used a national model called Safe Routes to School, which includes pedestrian and biking education. Our two non-profit organizations have shared licensed instructors (LCIs) teaching the same curriculum from the League of American Bicyclists, trailers loaded with fleets of youth bicycles and a truck while operating in local schools under separate contracts.
