Happy Bike Month. There’s a lot going on but I want to get word about this event: a Bike to Work Day ride with the new General Manager for the Valley Transportation Authority, Nuria Fernandez. Santa Clara County Supervisor Ken Yeager (pictured below), VTA transportation planners, BPAC members, and other VTA staff will also participate in this morning ride from downtown San Jose to the VTA offices on North First Street.

The best free bike to work day breakfast?

For those of you who live, bike or work in Santa Cruz County, Happy Autumn Bike to Work Day. I watched this group of Easton / Bell Sports / Giro employees biking up to their office in Scotts Valley from Santa Cruz this morning. They’re following me to the most awesome breakfast station in the county.

Those who participate in Bike to Work Day know that you’ll find a pastry or maybe sliced fruit along with a slug of cheap coffee at the typical Bike to Work Day breakfast station.
