LESSER KNOWN: "Bliss in the Moment," by James Moore.

Located on the San Francisco Bay Trail and visible from Highway 101, this abstract rendering of a cyclist gazing off into the distance of the baylands is meant to memorialize Bill Bliss, the influential San Jose cycling activist, who worked hard to advance causes, such as the Bay Trail and bicycle-safety infrastructure all over the state. According to DeMarzo, the odometer on the front of the bicycle portion of the sculpture has the number of miles Bliss traveled on the Odyssey 2000 cycling tour around the world -- 20,126.
