Bike To Work Day in the San Francisco Bay Area is on Thursday, May 17, where we expect 100,000 cyclists to stop at Energizer Stations throughout the Bay Area, with 20,000 of them in Santa Clara County, where I will ride.
I plan to visit several of the "Energizer Stations" in Santa Clara County along the Caltrain line. I'll start at San Jose Diridon Station, work my way to El Camino Real & Lincoln in Santa Clara, stop at El Camino Real & Wolfe and the Sunnyvale Caltrain Station in Sunnyvale. After that i'll drop in at the Mountain View Caltrain Station and hang out there for a while before crossing over the Palo Alto to visit the Energizer Stations at the California Avenue Caltrain Station, Palo Alto City Hall, and the University Avenue Bikestation.
Look for me on a gray Specialized Roubaix with a large black messenger bag with the "Seven Cycles" logo on it. I'll take plenty of photos.
If you elect to use public transportation, you can get a free VTA day pass by using the free bike valet parking services offered at the Mountain View Transit Center, San Jose Diridon Station, or Milpitas Great Mall.
Check out this excellent article about biking to work in the Mercury News. The writer -- who is himself a cycling commuter -- highlights executives of high tech and immigrant cooks who ride their bikes to work.
