We’ll then take a short tour of Santa Monica bike infrastructure to demonstrate how some of these features work and can be used. You’ll also learn basic bike safety tips and Rules of the Roadto help reduce conflicts and keep your rides SAFE & FUN — all while enjoying the community and connecting with Bike Local businesses. Surely to be a day of fun and excitement. At this months event we will visit and get a short tour of the Virginia Ave Park Farmers Market.

We had such a blast with Countri Bike’s Jeffrey Tanenhaus yesterday!
We met at 26th & Broadway, Hulu headquarters at the Colorado Center Park to ride with Jeffrey on the last leg of his cross country journey through Santa Monica to the finish line and the end of Route 66 at the top of the Santa Monica Pier. The energetic happy group rode on Broadway with SO MANY Breeze Bikes — and picking up more along the way!
We had a super fun finish line ribbon cutting with press, photographers and a great crowd enjoying the festivities. Jeffrey is always saying he’s met SO MANY wonderful people on his journey across the US — but nothing like this fun event that brought such a crowd — including folks from near and far that came out to help us celebrate the finish line of Jeffrey’s wonderful tour.
We will have the photo gallery up soon, Including riding through the finish line!
For now enjoy the video of smiles, bikes, NYC & SM Bike Share all together having a great ride.
We are planning to welcome Jeffrey to the West Coast with a ride along the last leg of his journey with City of Santa Monica’s own Breeze Bike Share, presented by Hulu. Together we will ride with Jeffrey from Colorado Center Park to the Santa Monica Pier. There we will celebrate the end of his journey with a finish line ribbon cutting (3:00pm) at the iconic end of Route 66 atop of the Santa Monica Pier followed by a Handlebar Happy Hour at Ristorante al Mare.
Though none would argue a public bike share bike is inteneded or would be most people’s choice for a long-distance bike ride, Jeffrey decided to ride the bike that had given him so much joy commuting to work and for his daily errands in New York City – promoting the versatility and benefits of healthy, active transportation and contributing to a less congested and more vibrant city.
“I hope to inspire you to make some changes in your own life to gain a little more happiness or see the city in a new way. Bike commuting did that for me.”
Join us for our Handlebar Happy Hour Holiday Edition, Family friendly event.
