We are getting ready and gathering Bike Month Promotions and Virtual Activities to share for Bike Month Santa Monica 2021! #BikeThere #BikeMonthSM #GoSaMo #BikeLocalSM #WhyIRide
May is National Bike Month, sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.
It’s a celebration of bikes; a reminder to get rolling again; a gateway to riding more often; a time to evangelize the beauty of bikes; and much, much more.
Whether you bike to work or school; ride to save money or time; pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment; or simply to explore your community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. The momentum is building: With growing cultural awareness around health and wellness, sustainability and economic savings, bicycling is being seen by new and broader audiences as a simple solution to many complex problems, from reducing obesity rates to increasing mobility options. This year, we want to hear from you. What’s your “why?” With so many reasons to ride, what’s yours? Use the hashtags #WhyIRide and #BikeLocalSM #BikeMonthSM on social media and also tag @SMSpoke @BikeLeague!
Each year the number and diversity of Bike Month celebrations continues to grow, accelerating the momentum around bicycling nationwide.
Santa Monica leads again! Today we celebrate the launch of the new shared hybrid ebikes and expanded mobility options in Santa Monica allowing more people access to healthy active mobility options beyond just driving a car. Today new Lyft ebikes launch in Santa Monica, available at 80 Breeze Stations.
The Lyft hybrid ebike comes with a cable to lock to any Breeze station for free. You can also lock to a public bike rack within the West Los Angeles service area for an extra $1.
At launch pricing: Ebikes are now available in the Lyft app, starting at just $1 to unlock + $0.34/min.* Whether you’re going that first mile or that last mile, ebikes are a fun, affordable way to get around town.
Lyft ebikes are available within the city of Santa Monica (the pink region) and can be ridden anywhere within the West Los Angeles service area (the purple region). Note that pedal assist won’t function outside these service areas or in the red regions visible in-app. Please do not leave parked ebikes outside the purple region, as you will be fined.

From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Paris to Pittsburgh celebrates how Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change.
And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act.
“Paris to Pittsburgh shines a light on the many forgotten communities and people who have been affected by climate change in our country, as well as solutions for how we can fight back and reduce our carbon footprint. I’m proud to be part of this poignant and powerful documentary, and admire the pro-active approach Bloomberg Philanthropies has taken with this project and this issue; we need meaningful change.”– Rachel Brosnahan
