In preparation for Bike Month I brought my bikes down to one of the best downtown bike shops Bicycle Express. Following my personal challenge from last year I have decided to once again give up my car for the entire month of May. So along with catching me cruising my Schwinn around town you will also find me walking and riding on the Valley Transportation Authority bus and light rail systems. Join me in this challenge for the entire month or at least on Bike to Work Day on May 12th. Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, #bikemonth, #nocarmonth, #sjd3
