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.
The Hedding Street and Ocala Avenue bikeways are on the agenda for Tuesday night’s City Council meeting in San Jose. While support remains for a proposed road diet on Hedding Street, heavy opposition to the street parking removal aspect has prompted some councilors to propose a compromise solution.
Important finishing work to take place Friday-Monday, August 24 – 27, on San Jose Guadalupe River trail adjacent to San Jose International Airport.
Anyone who semi-regularly uses the Guadalupe River Trail between I-880 and Highway 101 alongside San Jose International Airport have noticed the paving works seems complete, and you’ve undoubtedly trespassed into the work area in spite of the “work closed” signs at each trailhead. Two additional coatings remain to be added, however, and bicycles and joggers using the path will damage the surface.
Bikes vs old ladies and hypocrites bloviating stupidly about class conflict.
Hedding Street in San Jose is a neighborhood arterial that feeds traffic to Highways 101, 87 and 880. The heavy traffic naturally results in more noise, air pollution, disease and risks for those who live on Hedding. This, in turn, results in lower home values and, apparently, a perception by some residents that they live in a “ghetto.”
Except for the loss of free street parking, San Jose’s proposed 4-3 lane reduction on Hedding Street will primarily benefit the people who live on Hedding. The 3 lane configuration can still safely handle the current level of traffic of 16,500 vehicles per day.
