“Bikes Mean Business” Bikecrawl

From Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition:

SVBC is partnering with Dishcrawl, a national startup founded on the premise that communities can be brought together through good food and good company, for our first “Bikes Mean Business” Bikecrawl.

On Saturday afternoon, May 18th, riders will gather in San José for a short tour through downtown with four delicious restaurant stops along the way. The “Bikes Mean Business” Bikecrawl is designed to highlight the important and growing role that a well designed bicycle transportation system plays in supporting local businesses. The Bikecrawl ride will include the Guadalupe River Trail and the new bike lanes on South Fourth and Tenth Streets. Because this is as Dishcrawl event, Bikecrawl is sure to have some tasty food from our favorite spots in downtown San José as well as San Pedro Square, Japantown and Naglee Park.
