Who's Ready for Bike Fun?

Original post made by Janet Lafleur, Rex Manor, on May 22, 2013

If you haven't noticed it yet, Mountain View is a great city for riding bicycles. It's flat so you don't have to work hard climbing steep hills. It has mild temperatures: cool in the morning and evening and even at midday in the summer it's rarely truly hot. And it doesn't rain much, even in the winter, and when it does it's rarely amounts to more than a drizzle.

I agree that Mountain View is a great town for bicycle commuters. There are a few places that could use improvement (especially the north and west parts of town), but there is a good core of excellent bike routes right now.
