Feed the Homeless & Hungry: Burrito by Bike in LA & Santa Barbara

Winter is a tough time for lots of people.

While the days are finally getting longer, it’s cold, it’s rainy and it’s wet.

If you’re like me, you want to curl up at home with a good book. You don’t want to be competing with cars on a  bicycle commute home.

Worse, you don’t want to commute to no home.

To help the homeless and the hungry in LA and Santa Barbara and other places, bicyclists are building burritos and delivering them by bike.

You can help too. Here’s how to feed the homeless and hungry by bicycle on Christmas eve in Santa Barbara: The Bicycle Burrito Project in Santa Barbara will meet up at Cranky’s Bikes on State St.  You can find out more on their facebook page or just show up with burritos in your pockets.

Find or create a Burrito Project near you! And if you do, let me know about it so I can post here to invite people to help.


This Santa’s Not Riding In The Rain

Because of the inclement weather SantaCon 2 is cancelled. It has been rescheduled for the First Friday in June when Santa has some time to relax  by the beach.

It is entirely possible that some Santas may gather in downtown Ventura today for carousing, caroling, music, and mayhem. Music at the Watermark would be the most likely target.

This family of Santas is likely going to sit out SantaCon 2 and stay home and dry. There’s lots of toys to be made in the workshop, cookies to be baked and an ugly sweater party to prepare for.

Please subscribe here at bikergo and go like The San Buenaventura ArtRiders Bicycle & Social Club to stay apprised of Santa’s doings in the coming year because each month Santa does organize a ride to create Christmas cheer all year round.

See you next year!
