I’m taking this Thursday, February 5 off to attend the Caltrain Joint Powers Board meeting. Bike capacity on the trains is on the agenda. The meeting starts at 10 AM. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll bike all the way from San Jose (or even from Santa Cruz) Thursday morning, or if I’ll take the train and look a little more professional and presentable. Forecast is rain for Thursday, so it’ll be a fendered bike either way. Which way should I go, bike friends? Sweaty like a cyclist? Dressed in slacks and button shirt like a professional office dweeb? Or even a tie and sport jacket?
