The San Jose Public Library (SJPL) is teaming up with San Jose Bike Clinic to present the Gira de Libro, the first ever SJPL bicycle tour.


The Gira de Libro is a guided community and staff bicycle ride that will visit seven of San Jose’s twenty-three branch libraries. The ride will start and finish at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library in downtown San Jose.


The tour date is 2014 May 10, starting at 10:00 AM with sign-in and bicycle safety check. For safety purposes, registration is required and the ride will be limited to 75 participants. The ride will stop at each library to regroup; the total distance is 25km (15.5 miles).


We invite you to ride with us and enjoy the City of San Jose’s libraries and bikeways.


Space is limited. Register today!


For more information please contact giradelibro@gmail.com


Please Note: The bicycle tour will not be held in the event of inclimate weather


The San Jose Bike Clinic, formed in 2012, is on a mission to grow more educated and savvy bicyclists. Through Bike Clinic’s monthly pop-up bicycle maintenance workshops, they empower San Jose’s bicyclists to repair their own bikes and ride safely on San Jose’s numerous roads and trails.


The name of the ride, Gira de Libro, is a play on the name of the famous Italian professional road bike stage race, Giro d’Italia, which starts May 9 and ends June 1. SJPL’s Gira de Libro roughly translates to “turns of the book” or “book tour.”
