Santa Monica Dirt: Biking from Montana

Posted by John Hathorn on August 28, 2015

Montana Avenue is the newest member of the Santa Monica bike share system Breeze. Located right outside of Groundworks LA on the corner of Montana + 16th is the shiny fleet of bright green bikes. Although still a skeptic (check out my November 2014 blog), I am curious to see how the program shapes up.


Breeze offers both online and “on the spot” opportunities to reserve your bike so you can always be on the go.


Grab and return your bike at any of the Breeze bike stations.


I really do hope the program catches on and might even take a few rides myself as the money has already been spent by the City and I will consider just about anything to reduce traffic delays and congestion.


Bike sharing has become a worldwide phenomenon and Santa Monica has jumped into the game thanks to $2 million in grant funds.


If this test run is a success you will see it sprawled out in 75 other locations citywide.


The instructions are easy to understand so signing up, picking up and paying to get riding might be simple.


Being a participating biker will cost you anything from $6/day to $119/annually.


Remember to ride over to my office at 14th and Montana or one of my open house properties. And ride safe while enjoying the bike you helped pay about $11,200 for!
