COAST celebrated National Bike to School Day on May 7th with many South Coast schools, and saw thousands of students biking, walking or using other sustainable modes of transportation to get to school! As an incentive for high student participation, COAST raffled off four new bikes (donated by Yardi Systems) and helmets to the four schools with the highest participation rates. Read our full Bike to School Day Recap Report for all the details, including the four lucky student bike winners. Here are a few photos of some of the many happy bike riders on National Bike to School Day:
Our Fall Gathering fundraiser gala was a wonderfully successful evening of sharing stories, smiles and the joys of sustainable transportation efforts across Santa Barbara County. No one epitomized that more than our annual Barry Siegel Award recipient, Ed France, Executive Director of the SB Bike Coalition and Bici Centro! Our silent auction was a big hit, with an array of diverse auction items (generously donated from area businesses) going to the winning high bidders. Take a look back at that night by ‘strolling’ through our photo slideshow! Thanks to all those who attended and contributed to our best Fall Gathering yet! Until next year, keep supporting the many sustainable transportation modes Santa Barbara has to offer!
