Sunrise 6:09: Cycling mania

The Dawn Joggers weren't surprised last year when the New York Times, quoting venture capitalist Randy Komisar, proclaimed "cycling is the new golf," at least in Silicon Valley. For the nine months that the connecting road between Santa Cruz Avenue and Junipera Serra and Alpine Road was closed, they got used to sharing their jogging path with early morning cyclists who roam Silicon Valley in massive packs (known as a peloton in cycle speak). It is not unusual for tech workers who live in the City to pedal the 30 to 45 miles to work in the Valley and back. One peloton shot by them this morning as they were crossing Sand Hill Road.
