SBBIKE is working to get safer and well-connected bikeways built in Santa Barbara. Currently, we're advocating for several new bikeways as part of the 2015 Santa Barbara Bicycle Master Plan Update.
Las Positas/Modoc Multiuse Path
This $15M funded project involves design and construction of a 2.6 mile-long separated multiuse pathway for bicyclists and pedestrians in City right-of-way along Modoc Road from Calle de Los Amigos to Las Positas Road and along Las Positas Road from Modoc Road to Cliff Drive. The project will provide key connections among Santa Barbara’s regional Cross-town and Coastal Bike Routes, the neighborhoods adjacent to the path, Elings Park, Arroyo Burro Beach County Park, and the Douglas Family Preserve.
Alisos Bicycle Blvd
The Alisos Bicycle Blvd. will create a calm neighborhood street for biking, walking and playing. The route will be on the Eastside and serve as a calm alternative to Milpas St for students and families to use.
Coastal Route Bikeway
Portions of the Coastal Route Bikeway are incomplete, creating gaps in an otherwise inviting bicycle route connecting the cities of Goleta, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria. This route is used for many daily trips between the 3 cities. It's also part of the larger California Coast Bikeway travelled by thousands of bike tourists from all over the world every year.
The East-West Crosstown Bikeway will be a safe and accessible bike route for crossing Highway 101 on Micheltorena. This bikeway connects Downtown and Westside Santa Barbara neighborhoods to other crosstown routes such as the Modoc/Obern Trail route to Goleta and the State St. bike lanes.
Bicycle Master Plan
The City of Santa Barbara approved their Bicycle Master Plan in 2016. There's much to do and many new items are popping up.
