From Stan Ng, producer of “Try Bicycling!”:
Several Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC) members have collaborated to produce and star in a local public access TV show to promote Bike-to-Work Day. That show can be seen on local, basic cable throughout Silicon Valley starting on Tuesday, April 17 and continuing to Bike to Work Day on May 17.
Dena Mossar hosts the 1/2-hour show, addressing non-bike commuters, and aiming to get people to “give it a try” on Bike to Work Day. Dena talks with Jerri-Ann Meyer, Ellen Fletcher and John Brazil who discuss BTWD activities, the Ellen Fletcher Bike Boulevard, and the Stevens Creek Trail. There are plenty of pictures and videos highlighting past BTWD energizer stations along with illustrations of the Bike Blvd and SCT. The show then features a segment on basic tips for the beginning commuter.
Broadast Times for Palo Alto, EPA, Menlo Park, Atherton, Stanford can be found on The Media Center’s webpage. The first cablecast date is April 19. For Mountain View, the broadcast times are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm starting on Tuesday April 17. Cupertino and Los Altos broadcast times are Saturdays, 11am starting on April 21.
