Come join us next Wednesday, February 4, 2015 for the first year anniversay of San Jose Bike Train!
San Jose Bike Train’s first ride took place one year ago next Wednesday, and I thank all of those who have joined in, brought snacks and treats, and helped to lead rides. I hope San Jose Bike Train inspires you to encourage people to try commuting by bike in your area.
San Jose Bike Train is a casually paced group ride every first and third Wednesday of the month. We ride from Diridon Station near downtown San Jose beginning shortly after 8 AM for destinations north along the Guadalupe River Trail. Pre-rides to Diridon from the Curtner Avenue Park-and-Ride and Tamien Park-and-Ride are available but you must RSVP by 6 PM the day before if you would like a ride partner.
Workplaces along the way include the Santa Clara County buildings, SJC Airport, and all of the office parks along North First Street Street in San Jose. We stop for coffee at Bel Bacio Caffe in Little Italy (hopefully a brief stop, but it doesn’t always turn out that way).
Even if you don’t work in North San Jose, I’d love if you could join us at Bel Bacio for a quick meet and greet next Wednesday at 8:10 AM. Bel Bacio is tucked between Highway 87, the Guadalupe River Trail, Julian Street and West Saint John Street next to Henry’s Hi Life in Little Italy. You can access the caffe directly from the trail by crossing through a little brick paved piazza. Consider placing your coffee order ahead of arrival via the website or the Order Ahead app.
