Lit by candles and white lights and accented by the sound of the trickling fountain in the brick courtyard of the Inn of the Spanish Garden, COAST’s Fall Gathering 2010 was a delightful event. Though awarded in absentia due to his world travels, we honored Ralph Fertig of the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition with the Barry Siegel Award for his longstanding work towards making our community safer and easier for bicyclists of all ages. Wilson Hubbell accepted the award on Ralph’s behalf and had prepared a witty few words reflecting on Ralph’s outstanding character and persistence in his advocacy.
Thank you to our sponsors: Inn of the Spanish Garden, Omni Fresco Catering, New Belgium Brewery, Santa Barbara Winery, and Cesar Vazquez Photography.
