GreenTown led a bike ride as part of the City’s DownTown Green events, Sunday, July 23. Organized by Mike Tkalcevic who is generously interning with GreenTown as part of a Master’s Degree program in Urban Planning at San Jose State University, we rode 10 miles to explore the quiet streets of Los Altos.
We started at the DownTown Green on Third Street, took back streets and cut-throughs to eventually get to the Farmers’ Market in Mountain View. It was a relaxing way to go, and when we got there we had no problem finding a place to park!
One of the young riders will be going to Blach next year, so we asked if she would be riding her bike. “Yes,” she said quietly. Her dad was more emphatic, “Yes, even in the rain!”
Her brother will be going into the fourth grade at Springer. Asked the same question, he said, “No.” Noticing our shock, he explained. “I walk to school.”
Excellent. These kids and their parents are setting such a wonderful example.
