2017 September: Viva Calle SJ (9/17/17)

2017 September: Viva Calle SJ (9/17/17)

Date:  17 Sept 2017

Paceline Adventure  is where all the links of Paceline can come together and enjoy a day of fun.  The actual riding is minimal (all different kind of bikes and all different kind of people are welcomed) and more focused on fun filled activity to grow friendship and community.

Viva Calle SJ is a San Jose City event where a designated (7+ mile) route (Lake Cunningham to Japantown) will be closed off to car traffic and available for runners, bikers, walkers, etc to take the streets.  There will be various festivities (musical, exercise groups, food, crafts, etc) happening all day at Viva Calle SJ as well as mobile feast trucks all around.  Checkout their website!

Paceline will be meeting up at Lake Cunningham at 9:30am near the start for the Opening Ceremony.  The course opens at 10am with the Mayor’s Heroes Ride where we will be honoring the heroes of the community.  With that ride, we will do a cruise ride where we just enjoy the sights and sounds of the event.  People can stop at local vendors and/or business to see what is offered.  Again, this fun day of just being out and seeing the SJ community.  I typically have lunch around 11:30am where everyone is welcome to join me at one of the local food trucks or you are free to continue to enjoy the rest of the festival.

If you don’t want to ride, feel free to run, walk, or all the above the activities.

Parking: Finding parking will be challenge because various roads will be closed.  I encourage people to either ride from home or find a convenient spot close to the route where you can park to ride to the starting location.  Please plan ahead in order to allow enough time get there so we all can start on time.

Venture Church Service:  This event is on a Sunday morning at the same time as Sunday morning services.  I encourage people to attend Saturday night services (either 4pm or 6pm) so that you don’t miss any of the sermon series.

If there are any questions (starting times, locations, parking), please let me know at tluzod@sbcglobal.net.  I will be happy to answer any of your questions.  Mark your calendars and I looking forward to having some fun with all the people of Paceline riders.
