Bike Commute Diaries: Secret Passages

27 May

You won’t find them behind a bookcase or under a staircase, but there are hidden bicycle and pedestrian passages in unexpected places. I thought I knew them all, like the Wilkie bridge that shoots you straight to Palo Alto. But I keep finding a new ones, and I know there are more out there, yet to be discovered.

About the Bike Commute Diaries: In honor of National Bike Month, I’m sharing 31 short, sweet and surprising things I’ve discovered about bike commuting one for each day in May. Happy National Bike Month!
