From Hwy 101: Take the "San Antonio North" exit, get immediately into the left-hand turn lane, and turn onto East Bayshore. This will curve around to the left, then right. The first street on your right is Corporation Way, turn right. Then turn into the first driveway on your left, which is the PCC parking lot. There is no sign near the lot entrance.
We have a bike rack for your security. In spring and summer, the pedestrian crossing under 101 is open. This is located on West Bayshore (the highway frontage road) where it becomes Fabian Way, near San Antonio and Charleston. Bike under the highway, then follow East Bayshore back toward the San Antonio overpass to the corner at Corporation Way. Unfortunately, in the fall and winter the undercrossing is closed because the slough floods it, so you have to take the San Antonio overpass. There is no northbound bike lane, but there is a southbound sidewalk; you are advised to cross San Antonio at Charleston, and follow San Antonio northbound toward the highway, on the sidewalk, on the wrong side and, yes, into traffic (since there is no sidewalk or bike lane on the other side, this is actually your safest route).
