The inaugural District 1 Bike, Ride and Roll Tour will give residents a different way of discovering the parks within San Jose Council District 1. By traveling at a human-scale speed, residents will gain new appreciation for the roads and trails that connect the D1 parks.
This self-powered journey will start and end at Marijane Hamann Park and will feature stops at many of the parks in District 1.
At many of the stops, volunteers from the neighborhood associations associated with that park, will hand out light refreshments to ensure that people stay hydrated and energized.
