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.
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.
Brian K created this video to promote Bike To Work Day this coming Friday, May 17 in San Diego, California.

But you already knew that, right?
You’re invited to join me on my 32 mile ride “over the hill” from Scotts Valley to Santa Clara on Bike to Work Day, Thursday, May 9, 2013.
The Transportation Agency for Monterey County had to cut back on their Bike Month promotion, but that doesn’t mean bicycling stops. Mari Lynch includes a big list of spring bike activities at her excellent resource for all things bikes in Monterey County.
