GreenTown Los Altos kicked off another season of First Saturday Bike Rides this past weekend. Led by Scott Vanderlip, bike enthusiast and GreenTown volunteer, three adults and five kids hit the road for a trip from downtown Los Altos to Stevens Creek Trail and then on to Shoreline Park. What a day for a ride! Blue sky, warm – my kind of winter weather we kept telling each other. We stopped for soft drinks and ice cream at Shoreline and then headed back home through the back streets of Palo Alto. Jessie, our youngest rider at age 10, was a real inspiration as we completed our 20 mile loop. That’s a lot of miles, but you know what, we all had a great time. Check out the GreenTown web site to see what we have planned for next month.
