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.”

So… wonderful news! Well speculated news as of now, but it seems highly probable that Amazon.com has leased the recently vacated Saks Fifth Avenue building here in Downtown Santa Barbara. How exciting! It is, again, speculated the super tech/retail company will be offering its employees a wealth of office space for there R&D team on the second and third floors and a possible Amazon Go cashierless retail store on the main floor. Oh goodness, what news this is! #growth !
I obtained this information from a wonderful article on NoozHawk.com. You can read for yourself if you click here, and seems to be “unofficially” verified in that Amazon has also posted a few jobs on their own website found here for the Santa Barbara area relative to its popular Alexa device.
