CycleMAYnia Sampler

This Week’s CycleMAYnia Highlights

<strong>CYCLING ON THE RISE:</strong> Seismic shifts are seizing the world of cycling. In Santa Barbara, 42 percent of the population rides recreationally. While the number of people who commute to and from work by bike is much smaller, it has nearly doubled since 2000.
Paul Wellman
