The ride featured some of Palo Alto's impressive bike infrastructure. The group meandered through the neighborhood before passing under the Caltrain tracks via the Homer Avenue Pedestrian/Bicycle Tunnel. After exploring the bike path behind the Westin Hotel and some parts of Stanford campus, riders returned to Heritage Park by way of Churchill Avenue.
Jason Hall, community organizer and Slow Roll Detroit co-founder, earned celebrity status when he was featured in an Apple iPad commercial. Slow Roll is a group bicycle ride that meets every Monday night in Detroit and has expanded into a Global network of community rides. Slow Roll is intended for everyone; all ages, all skill levels and any type of bike.
The Palo Alto ride was hosted by Bicycling's test editor Ron Koch, Shinola's Sky Yaeger, and Slow Roll's Jason Hall. After the ride, Shinola served brunch in the park.
