Breeze bike Share at the Green Tent on January 29th !

Have you noticed those bright green bikes around 
Santa Monica and Venice lately?

That's Breeze Bike Share! Breeze is a system of publicly-owned bike share bikes - an eco-friendly and convenient way to get around town. 

To empower personal mobility, heighten livability, augment existing transit, stimulate economic growth, and promote an active and healthy lifestyle for residents and visitors, the City of Santa Monica launched Breeze Bike Share in November 2015. We currently have 500 bikes and over 80 stations throughout Santa Monica and the northernmost part of Venice. Just this last month we hit the mark of 40,000 Breeze subscribers! 

How is bike sharing "green"?
Biking is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint - for every mile you bike instead of drive, you prevent approximately .9lbs of carbon emissions from entering our atmosphere. 

Our Breeze bikes make going car-free carefree! It's easy to hop on a bike at one of the many stations around town instead of taking your car. 
Another way Breeze is eco-friendly is that we use solar panels to charge the "brain" of our smart-bikes. Next time you see one of our bikes on the street, check out the solar panel on the back. 

We also have a dynamo in the front wheel, allowing your pedaling to power the built-in front and rear lights. Talk about power to the people! 

Lastly, we use an Electric Vehicle to move bikes to areas of high-need. You've probably seen it around town - give our bike technician Spencer a wave when you see him.

Got a question about Breeze Bike Share? Check out our website breezebikeshare.com or give us a call at 310-828-2525
We're here for you.

Happy Breezing and we hope to see you at the Mar Vista Farmers Market Green Tent on January 29th.
