Every month is Bike Month! Its a perfect way to explore/enjoy our magnificent area and shockingly perfect weather(except when its 1000 degrees like today)

Get out and ride, and if unsure, ask a friend to help you get started. I bet you'll find someone excited to help you out. Once you start, be ready to be attacked by the smile monster :)

Great photo with a third of the riders UNHELMETED!

If you are going to represent the City at a cycling event, set a better example for kids, people.

Hooray! Until today we went over one full week of this story up, without someone finding something/anything bike related to complain about. Also, not one person brought up running red lights.
Congrats Mountain View...over a full week without a complainer.
This shows great progress!

Thank you mountain view for providing these educational courses on biking! I wonder if the urban bike skills class would cover navigating our "outdoor cat" infested streets and sidewalk? Just the other day, an un-collared cat darted in front of my bike. I swerved to avoid it and almost hit a parked car. If that is not part of the curriculum, it ought to be.
