October is Rideshare Month

Rideshare has plenty of reasons for you not to drive solo on your commute, throughout the entire month you can be rewarded by choosing a new option! Every week they are giving away $100 prizes to people for logging their commutes, and more prizes each day.

Transit Tuesdays. Carpool Wednesdays. Vanpool Thursdays. Bike Fridays… there’s something for everyone! Bike Fridays are complete with bike breakfasts and bike happy hours, and other perks for riding your bike throughout the month. We are hosting a free mini Bike Ed workshop on October 11th from 6:00 – 7:00pm at the Coalition HQ, to help people feel confident riding their bike on their commute.

July 4th Bike Parade

Morro Bay’s July 4th celebration included the 2nd annual bike parade! We were glad to be a part of the parade, and park bikes at Tidelands Park at the end of the ride down the Embarcadero. Early estimates were around 500 participants in the parade, which went from the Rock to Tidelands, as a sea of red, white & blue on two wheels! See more photos on our flickr photostream here.
