Bay Area Bike to Work Day 2014

Last night I set my alarm for 4:30 AM for my anticipated 32 mile ride “over the hill” (i.e. over the Santa Cruz Mountains) to the office. I have no recollection of this alarm going off; all I know is I groggily looked at the clock, saw that it said 5:45 and hurried out of bed, into my clothes, onto my bike and to the bus stop.

It’s now too late to bike the entire distance. I luckily caught the 6:15 bus (which had one space available for my bike) for the trip to San Jose. From there, I joined the 30-strong bike convoy organized by VTA, which is the county-wide transportation agency that builds highways and runs the transit system.
