The San Jose Bike Party rolled through Los Gatos the other week. It “snarled traffic” on Santa Cruz Avenue. I wonder how they tell, since traffic on Santa Cruz Avenue through Los Gatos is always snarled.
The bike ride through town snarled traffic, so police rerouted drivers away from N. Santa Cruz Avenue.
“It was terrible,” former Los Gatos resident Emerald Hathaway said. “I couldn’t even get onto N. Santa Cruz. They were riding around all the cars. It was quite a sight.”
Los Gatos Weekly-Times columnist Mary Ann Cook also got stuck in the melee, saying it took a long time to get out of downtown.
