Silicon Valley is a global center of technological innovation. Named after the main material in computer microprocessors, Silicon Valley is home to dozens of major technology, software, and internet companies.
The heart of Silicon Valley–towns like Mountain View and Santa Clara–should be the ultimate place to bike. It’s usually 72 degrees and sunny; it’s mostly flat. Silicon Valley is turning into something more like the bicycle paradise of Copenhagen, minus Copenhagen’s snow and bracing Baltic wind.
