The bike culture in Santa Barbara is growing! This video showcases how, what, and why, and serves as a model for all of us trying to show the world the cycling is a more than just races or commuting or a grind or an ax to grind –but a fun way to connect with your neighbors, your friends and your community.
This looks like such a fun way to spend a summer afternoon! A family friendly bike ride around LA’s Griffith Park followed by some free Shakespeare! And period costumes too! Maybe we can get a ride going in Ojai to see the outdoor performance put on by Theater 150!

Tomorrow’s Midtown Community Council Meeting features Tom Mericle presenting the City’s Draft Bike Plan which covers the entire City of Ventura which is now open for public comment.
See what is being proposed, demonstrate that people care about bicycling in Ventura, and express your thoughts by attending and participating at the meeting.
You’ll be in good company: Mayor Bill Fulton lives in midtown as does City Manager Rick Cole and they just might show at the meeting as might other city council members.

Thinking about Independence Day reminded me of last year’s July First Friday ArtRide–The Fossil Fuel Free Ride. So here’s a quick ride down memory lane with photos by Mark Mathews. The August 2010 theme is the same as the Ventura County Fair’s–”Western Nights & Carnival Lights” and we ride First Friday and the next morning we’ll ride in the fair parade. Join us!

Looking for a Fourth of July “ride”? If you’re around Ventura, grab a kid and head over to Main Street and push, pull, ride along or stroll Main from Chrisman to the Street Fair.

What a glorious day! Perfect summer weather for a Ventucky Vice ArtRide on my bikergo along the beach and the streets of Ventura!
For the July ride, our squad ranged from 20-35, as people came and went along the route.
We started at the Artists Union, as usual, meeting up there at 530pm and rolling along the promenade a little after 6pm.
From the Ventura River bike path, we turned onto Main where we dismounted to see the student art exhibit at CSUCI. We cruised up Main past Winchesters and Bernadettes, then rolled back down Main to stop at Love Fox to see Winston’s drawings and to enjoy his light lemony home-made hummous. Just in case you didn’t know, Winston did the logo for the Ventura Bicycle Union. There are several new shops these days in the El Jardin courtyard and we look forward to riding over there another day for a visit!
Our final stop was Art City where Art Ciizens had an art show plus a spread of snacks. Thanks to Anacapa for the donation of 8 growlers of beer including a porter, a new golden ale, and a red. The fire and the evening roared on but my feet gave out first and said it was time to ride home.
Thanks to Daniel Bogg and my iPhone for ArtRide photos! More and different ones will be up in a moment over at Art Predator; I’ll add more here as people send them to me!
