I'm a little late with this news from my employer about bicycling to JavaOne. Most people I know attending from the South Bay just ride the train up to San Francisco and walk to the Moscone Center .
Sun is continuing to promote Eco Responsibility at JavaOne and will be hosting our second-annual Bike to JavaOne for all partners, employees and conference attendees next week. To help Sun make JavaOne a "greener" event, you are encouraged to bike or take public transportation to the conference.
To make things easier, Sun has again partnered with the San Francisco Bike Coalition to offer a free "Bike Valet" services. The "Bike Valet" service will be available Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am - 7:00 pm and Friday from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm in front of the Moscone Center South Hall.
To make the event fun, we will be giving away Sun-branded, reusable Nalgene bottles to the first 100 bikers.
So, please tell your conference-going friends, post a quick note on your blog and bike to JavaOne. Your participation will have a positive impact at the conference and on the environment.
JavaOne started today at the Moscone Center in San Francisco and runs through Thursday. Bicycle valet parking runs to 7 p.m., so if you stay for the night events you'll need to make other arrangements.
Directions: After exiting the Caltrain station at 4th and King in San Fransisco, go left up 4th Street. Turn left onto Townsend, which is a signed bike route. Turn right onto 5th with its bike lanes. Moscone is to the right on Howard Street, but you'll be riding against one-way traffic so walk your bicyle on the sidewalk to the entrance.
