Bike Month Wrap-Up

Rideshare’s Bike Month was off the charts this year, with thousands of participants from throughout the County getting on a bicycle at least once during the month.

Bob Jones Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Join us for a ribbon cutting of the latest extension of the Bob Jones trail leading out to Avila Beach! This new 1/4 mile section extends the existing trail from San Miguel St to 1st St in Avila Beach, allowing for a safer transition into town off of the trail.

Where: San Juan St & 1st St map

When: Friday May 27, 11:00 am

Photobooth This Thursday at Farmer’s

Get your bike portrait taken at the Bike Valet this Thursday at Farmer’s Market and help us show how much people love bikes! It’s a great way to show off the personality of you and your bike, and helps us promote biking in SLO County. Visit for previous photos.

2011 Bike Fashion Show

Thanks to everyone who came out on Friday May 20th for the Bike Fashion Show! It was full of local styles, live music, dancing, local silent auction items, handmade fashions and a great atmosphere for everyone involved! Special thanks to all who organized/volunteered at the event, and we hope to do it again next year to continue the fun.

There are some more great photos from the night from Central Coast Brewing here.

2011 Bike-In Movie

This past Friday was the Bike-In Movie, and it was a blast! We’d like to thank all of those who came out and braved the cold to join us for the movie “Flipped” and some popcorn under the stars. Check out more photos on Rideshare’s Flickr page.
