|The City of Sao Paulo marks
one lane exclusively for bikers (the pedal ones ;) on
Sundays and national holidays. The 45 km route through the
city is served by tons of volunteers providing directions
and safety with the traffic in other lanes. The lanes are
well marked and is a way to make to promote healthy
lifestyle in the city. The ride is mostly flat with one
small hill towards the end. Check out CicloFaixa for
|Fabiane Nardon and gang used this opportunity to arrange a Geek Bike Ride for the local community to meet JavaOne speakers in an informal setting. Our bike angels Fabiane, Claudio, and Fernando did a fabulous job of keeping the riders together. Claudio not only completed 4000 km on his bike yesterday but is also one of the best know agile speakers in Brazil. I had the opportunity to work with Fernando on the release of the largest local guide deployment in Brazil and he is a sharp guy. And everybody knows Fabiane, a Java Champion, Duke Choice Award winner, entrepreneur, java.net Tools Community Manager, and a lot more.|
There were no technology discussions, just pure fun, laughter, and a great workout!
I shared a bunch of Odwalla bars with all the bikers and they were well appreciated. Check out the picture below for the riders getting powered by an Odwalla bar before the ride:
