CycleMAYnia returns to the Central Coast from May 1-31, 2018. The “Bike Month” encourages people of all ages and biking abilities to get out and ride. Established in 2005, the regional event promotes good clean fun through activities hosted by local businesses, organizations, and community members. This year’s CycleMAYnia will feature 40 bike rides and events ranging from bike-to-work breakfasts and family-friendly rides, to skill clinics and maintenance workshops.

“The community benefits through fewer cars on the road and reduced emissions, as well as elevated levels of joy and friendliness amongst neighbors, strangers, and coworkers,” said Lori La Riva, Traffic Solutions/TDM Program Coordinator for Santa Barbara County Association of Governments.

As part of the month, the National Bike Challenge kicks off May 1. During the Challenge, riders can compete for fun prizes and awards, and fuel up at free bike-to-work breakfasts. Community members and Yardi employees can sign up as a team or as an individual on the National Bike Challenge website.

“This is a great way to bring together local businesses in the community and for employees to see how much fun biking to work can be,” shared Kelly Johnson, Yardi event coordinator. “It brings together people that might not have crossed paths otherwise.”

A CycleMAYnia sponsor and longtime participant, Yardi will host the Bike Challenge Kick-Off Breakfast on May 1, 2018 from 7:15 – 9:00 a.m. Bike on over to Yardi headquarters (430 S. Fairview Ave., Goleta) for free food, music, and fun!
