May is Bike Month AND Affordable Housing Month. So, let’s go on a bike ride to learn about affordable housing!

Do you like bikes? Do you like learning things on your bike? Come out for a ride that explores affordable housing in Palo Alto by bike!

The ride is an approximately 12-mile route stopping at two to three affordable housing developments and the city’s Opportunity Center. We will learn more about how the developments were built and how they operate, while also learning about safe bike infrastructure. We will finish at Palo Alto City Hall (250 Hamilton Avenue) where folks can grab lunch at their favorite restaurant and check out the Affordable Housing Resource Fair, which begins at 1:00 p.m.

For the even more curious, arrive at 9:30am for coffee with Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition Board Chair and Palo Alto Forward Executive Director, Amie Ashton.

What to bring:
  • A working bicycle
  • Flat repair kit (optional)
  • Layers of clothing given weather forecast
  • Helmet
  • Water
  • Snacks (if you like)

If you’d like to volunteer to help keep riders safe on the street, please sign up for a Volunteer Ride Support ticket.
