Annual Dinner a Success! Congrats to Wheelie award winners and thanks to all our donors

Thanks to everyone who came out on Sunday, December 6 for our Annual Dinner! We had a great time celebrating the year's successes, enjoying tasty food and drinks, and looking forward to the year ahead.

Thanks also to Chef Andrea for an outstanding feast, the local farms and businesses that donated dinner ingredients, wine and beer, and all of the local artists and businesses who contributed the fabulous silent auction items. Check out the full list below.

And thanks to local business Leatherwise for being our first event sponsor!

Every year, Bike Santa Cruz County presents two awards to individuals and organizations for their contributions to bicycling in Santa Cruz County. Here are the winners of the 2015 Wheelie Awards:

Land Trust of Santa Cruz County Development Team. This year, the Land Trust pledged $3M in matching funds for 5 miles of rail trail on the north coast. The Regional Transportation Commission successfully won grant funds for this segment of trail, and the Land Trust funds were a big part of their success. To contribute to the Land Trust fundraising campaign, visit:

Regional Transportation Commission Bicycle Advisory Committee.
The Bicycle Committee is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. It was one of the earliest bike committees in the country and, over the past 40 years, committee members have worked tirelessly to improve conditions for cyclists throughout the county. Recent successes include a compromise with Caltrans to improve the rumble strips project that was installed on Hwy 1, making the rumble strips less hazardous for people on bikes. 


Thanks to our donors for making this event possible!
