Santa Barbara Voted Top Cycling City in California!

Participants in the “Two-Wheel Town Hall Bike Ride” get ready to pedal in Solvang on Wednesday.

According to an article written by Nick Welsh of the Santa Barbara Independent “The City of Santa Barbara ranked first in all California cities when it comes to bicycle ridership for both commuting and recreation, bicycle safety, demographic breadth of ridership, and infrastructure improvements on the way.”

“The ranking was issued by PeopleForBikes, a bicycle advocacy organization made up of major players in the bicycle industry. Santa Barbara got an overall score of 3.1 for the year 2019, up from 1.9 the year before. Typically, the City of Davis has long dominated most surveys on bicycle-accessible cities, but ranking ahead of Davis this year were Ventura, Lompoc, Goleta, Santa Maria, Carpinteria, and Buellton.”
