This event will take place in San Jose.

When driving from destination to destination we too easily miss the finer details of the communities in which we live, work and play — from the rich diversity of our cities’ cultural centers to the architectural details of our historic neighborhoods. Join SPUR San Jose director Leah Toeniskoetter for a Sunday morning bike tour through downtown San Jose and its surrounding neighborhoods as we trace the new bike lanes, discover hidden gems and learn what is within an easy ride from our urban core.

Supported by the City of San Jose.
