What A Ride: Historic Bike Ride Impresses Many!


Sep 2017


On Sept. 10, almost 40 riders toured Los Altos on bikes to see historic homes along with assorted local properties. It’s nice and quiet on a Sunday morning, making it a perfect time for a family-friendly ride.

We started at the History Museum, made our way around town to take in 20 stops and ended back at the Museum for a picnic lunch and a chance to see the current exhibition, Eichler Homes: Modernism for the Masses.

Some of the riders have taken the tour before, and came back because it’s a nice way to reconnect with the history of our town; other riders new to the area just wanted to learn about Los Altos. Either way, everyone had a great time.

Lined up and ready to go at the History Museum. Co-leaders Gary Hedden and Jim Thurber are front and center.

Visiting the Farnsworth Farm house. This home was built in 1895.

The nicely restored and maintained Guy Shoup house on University Avenue.

Everyone enjoyed Armond King’s model trains at the Bleibler house.
