Happy USA Bike Month 2023! I intend to re-launch San Jose Bike Train Real Soon Now. This is a casual morning bike commute on the Guadalupe River Trail. We’ll begin in downtown San Jose from San Pedro Square Market for coffee from Voyager Craft Coffee, hit the trail, and ride north on the trail to River Oaks, with people peeling off along the way for their destinations that can include the Santa Clara County buildings, SJC Airport, and VTA HQ. The trail is mostly clear with some minor work still needed underneath Hwy 101. Please comment below for your thoughts on day of the week and start time.

The Santa Cruz Mountains Trail Stewardship encourages you to take part in what they hope is their largest trail work day ever on National Trails Day. They’ll team up with over 20 other local organizations to host 19 different events throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains. After a morning of trail work, they’ll host a big after party at DeLaveaga Park. Learn more at their Trails Day event page.
In June 2017, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Board of Directors approved a contract with a vendor to provide three-position exterior bike racks for their bus fleet. The award has been contested, and VTA is required to conduct a new procurement process. Individuals who were previously involved in the prior procurement process are not permitted to participate in this new procurement process. This includes anyone who provided comment on the previously approved design and vendor.
If you have not provided comment before, you are invited to review and comment on sample three-position racks TODAY, Thursday, October 19 2017, from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM at the Cerone Bus Yard, 3990 Zanker Road, San Jose, CA 95134. Find the sample racks at the flagpole at this remote bus yard up by 237 on Zanker Road in north San Jose.

Check out the new two-way cycle track and bike signal for Sunset Avenue & Hopkins Drive at Story Road, San Jose, California during the ribbon cutting ceremony this Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 6 P.M.
Sunset Avenue provides a north-sound connection across I-680 free of the high speed highway access ramp just north of Story Road. Other nearby crossings either have freeway ramps or, in the case of Highway 101, the crossing is completely inaccessible to cyclists and pedestrians.
Southbound cyclists at Story Road, however, cannot easily make the dogleg turn to Hopkins. The median on Story Road prevents left turns from Sunset. This engineering change normalizes what cyclists already practice to get across a tricky intersection.
San Jose DOT will repave Kooser Road from Camden Avenue to Blossom Hill Road later in 2017. As part of the pavement project, the City of San Jose DOT plans a 4-3 lane reduction between Camden and Meridian. The community can give their input on these plans at a community meeting Tuesday, June 6th, 2017, 7:00 – 8:30 pm, at Vineland Branch Library, 1450 Blossom Hill Road, San Jose, CA.
