Mayor's Bike Ride


Monthly Bike Rides with the Mayor

With over 100 miles of bikeways, a convenient bike share system with 85 stations, enviable weather and relatively flat terrain, Santa Monica is a great place to ride a bike! Even our own Mayor Ted Winterer is a cyclist and in 2017 he's inviting everyone to join him on monthly community rides. 

The rides are on City streets with and without bike lanes. Children should be capable of street riding or in an appropriate child seat or trailer. 

No bike? No problem! Just grab a Breeze Bike
