Mark your calendars! For one day this May, cyclists, pedestrians, joggers, and all other self-powered movers and shakers will have a street to themselves in the heart of Downtown San Jose. The Mattson Technology San José ViaVelo is an unprecedented event that will clear San Fernando Street of cars so that the community can enjoy Downtown at ground level, in the open air.
The Mattson Technology ViaVelo, presented by the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and the City of San José, is part of a global movement to open up city streets for the community to use for walking, cycling, and other human-powered fun. All ages are welcome to enjoy the celebration, which will feature casual bike rides, live bands, contests, fun activities, and connections to the Guadalupe River Trail.
