This week is bike week in Santa Barbara, a time for us to consider riding our bikes instead of driving, and to participate in local bike activities. Turns out we could conserve 20% more energy in Santa Barbara by committing ourselves more to alternative transportation (Chapter 3 of CEC’s energy blueprint / PDF). Considering our near-perfect weather, pedaling ourselves around town doesn’t sound like too far a stretch. Visit the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition web site for more information.
And if you happen to find yourself on your bike Wednesday morning (the official bike to work day), stop by the corner of De La Guerra and State street between 7am and 9am for some pre-work festivities.
