The best Sunnyvale to San Jose bike route

Here is the best (prettiest, lowest traffic, fewest stoplights, most trees & shade) bicycling route I know from Southern Sunnyvale to Adobe Systems headquarters at 345 Park Avenue in downtown San Jose and back again:

It's about 11 miles and passes many parks and schools. Credit to Roberto Perelman for showing me the bulk of this most excellent biking route. I've been using it periodically since 2001 or so and Roberto rides it daily.

I mentioned this in email, but is helpful for your bike route sharing needs.

"Best" is in the eye of the beholder, of course. Fewer lights is good, but all of those zigzags would get me lost! I'd probably just shoot straight down Fremont to ECR, right on Monroe, cut onto Market and follow that around to Park and take that all the way to Adobe. It's simple and safe, though there are a lot of lights to deal with.
