I visited six “Energizer Stations” in San Jose during Bike To Work Day 2012 on Thursday, May 10, 2012.
My first Energizer station was the San Jose MLK Library station sponsored by the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition. SVBC Director Corinne Winter helps a cyclist fill out a survey.
After that, I swung around to Diridon Station, where hundreds of cyclists use Caltrain and Amtrak every day to travel to and from San Jose. The American Diabetes Association was on hand with goodies, along with information about the Silicon Valley Tour de Cure, which takes place June 10.
I also ran into Ryland with his authentic Chinese Flying Pigeon bike. He says he it bought from some guy on Craigslist.
I then moved on to Julian Street to hunt in vain for an Energizer Station sponsored by Fehr & Peers Transportation Consultants, but I never could find them. They’re doing the consulting for the San Jose part of Bike Share and I wanted to meet these folks. Oh well.
Next, onto the Guadalupe River Trail, where I found these fine folks from the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy near Coleman Avenue.
I left the trail at Hedding Street to make my way to the Santa Clara County offices, where I ran into County Supervisor Ken Yeager.
The “eBay Green Team” sponsored this Energizer Station on the corner of 1st and Brokaw.
Where did you stop on your Bike To Work Day?
