Avalos rode with the group as far as the Bayshore Caltrain station, where he hopped on the northbound train back to 4th & King so he could make it back to downtown in time for a breakfast meeting. He used his Clipper card but forgot to tag off at 4th & King, so Caltrain will charge him $12.75 for fare to Gilroy instead of the $2.75 single zone fare he’s entitled to.
As far as I know, John Avalos is the only political candidate with an official election spoke card. He’s an avid cyclist and long time bike commuter. Here’s a video of him riding with SF Bike Party last month.
Avalos is running with the endorsement of the city Democratic Party in a field of 16 candidates for the November election.
Read the full ride report by John Murphy, who invited Avalos along for that ride and includes a link to Avalos’s plan for a world class bike city.
