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.
On Saturday November 4th, join us, Mayor Ted Winterer and Santa Monica Spoke on a community ride followed by a brunch time birthday celebration at The Albright on the Pier. The 5-mile ride will depart at 10:00 am from the 17th Street Expo Station and end at 11:00 am. No bike? No problem! Breeze is offering free ride time all day! Monthly, annual, and student members will not be charged for ride time exceeding the 90 minutes included with membership. Pay-as-you-go members will not be charged for their ride time. Bike bounties and Out-of-Hub/Out-of-System-Area fees still apply during the promotional period. Click here for more ride details.
