Bike Tour of Historic Los Altos
~by Gary Hedden
Started six years ago, GreenTown led another bike tour of historic homes and places in Los Altos Sept. 23. With almost thirty riders, many of them kids, this family-friendly bike ride of eight miles visited over twenty spots. We started at the History Museum, stopped at the grand Marini Estate, saw the homes of both Guy and Paul Shoup, visited Redwood Grove and the Winchester-Merriman house and so much more. Several homeowners came out to talk to us and offer their thoughts about living in such special places. We ended up back at the Museum for lunch and a batch of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
