San Jose is on the fast track to becoming America’s next great biking city. Join Greenbelt Alliance and our friends from the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition for a 16-mile urban biking adventure through San Jose.
We’ll see firsthand some of San Jose’s plans for safer bike routes and for better neighborhoods.
Leader’s Notes: Helmets are required. While there will be many opportunities to rest along the ride, if you are uncomfortable riding your bicycle above a 10 mph pace over a 16 mile distance, this might not be the right ride for you. Please bring along lunch, snacks, and lots of water to fuel you for the 16-mile roundtrip ride. There will be opportunities to resupply food and water during the trip. If you are unable to carry enough food and drink for yourself, please contact Adam Garcia to determine extra carrying capacity with other riders.
How to Get There:
We will meet at the benches in front of the San Fernando VTA station, located east of Diridon Station.
