Sunnyvale Vice Mayor bikes to work

Happy Bike Month and Happy Friday. Sunnyvale Vice Mayor Gustav Larsson, shown below in the yellow jacket and green Marin hardtail mountain bike, joined this morning’s inaugural “BikePool” ride from Sunnyvale to his day job as a software engineer in North San Jose. Gustav holds Seat 1 in Sunnyvale’s at-large city council, and is also the city council liaison for the Sunnyvale Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission.

San Jose Bike Train: Now with free (near) downtown parking

I run San Jose Bike Train to encourage newcomers to try commuting by bike. Our transit-friendly start point, unfortunately, conflicts with this goal. Free, all-day parking is difficult to find near Diridon Station and Bel Bacio Coffee, where we normally meet.

For 2015, I added VTA Park & Ride lots. A colleague requested parking near Bel Bacio, so I scouted around and found street parking within a half mile of Bel Bacio.
