Countri Bike Finale - East Meets West
Bike commuter turned bike tourist Jeffrey Tanenhaus has ridden a NYC bike share bike across the US and finished his cross country tour in Santa Monica Saturday January 23rd.

We welcomed Jeffrey to the West Coast with a ride along the last leg of his journey with City of Santa Monica’s own Breeze Bike Share, presented by Hulu. Together we rode from Colorado Center Park to celebrate the end his journey with a finish line ribbon cutting at the iconic end of Route 66 atop of the Santa Monica Pier followed by a Handlebar Happy Hour at Ristorante al Mare.

Though none would argue a public bike share bike is intended or would be most people’s choice for a long-distance bike ride, Jeffrey decided to ride the bike that had given him so much joy commuting from his home to work and for his daily errands in New York City – promoting the versatility and benefits of healthy, active transportation and contributing to a less congested healthier city.
