The Silicon Valley Bike Coalition and Valley Water are inviting the community to Ride Out the Drought, a free, month-long program that combines transportation by bike with learning about Santa Clara County’s water system.

Through Nov. 12, 2022, cyclists of all skill levels can take a self-guided ride using one of Silicon Valley Bike Coalition’s pre-mapped routes.

“We have shorter rides on greenways and separated paths for beginners, families with children or those looking for a nice, leisurely ride,” the organization said. “We have longer routes on open roads or urban areas for those looking for a challenge.”

While riding, cyclists can take breaks at the stops highlighted along the routes, where they’ll have a chance to gain a better understanding of water in the county.

The routes are available on the app Ride with GPS . Here participants can get directions and learn about the points of interest that Silicon Valley Bike Coalition has highlighted.“The routes are available at any time, so you can ride when it suits you best,” the organization said.Participants are also encouraged to record their ride in Ride with GPS to get more chances to win in a weekly raffle. Those who ride the most miles can earn prizes.Register for the Ride Out the Drought at bikesiliconvalley.org .City seeks public input for new park […]
