Cycling between suburban residential areas and sprawling corporate campuses in Silicon Valley can be stressful and risky. Google, along with regional bike advocates, recently released a plan for European-style, bikeable streets around the tech-heavy North Bayshore area of Mountain View. Supporters hope the plan will be a model for encouraging and increasing bike commuting throughout the region.
