Palo Alto's Bicycle Boulevard
In April of 1995,
Mark Spain and I took Caltrain to Palo Alto from San Jose, where I obtained
a permit for my bike at the ticket counter in less than 5 minutes. A week
later, the permit requirement was abolished.
Bill and Terri Michel of the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition met us at the
Palo Alto Caltrain station and gave us a tour of the Bicycle Boulevard.
