Non-bike friendly? Compared to SoCal? I find that a bit hard to believe...
San Jose may not be as friendly for bikers as other places, but it's certainly a good place to ride a bike! I've been bike commuting since 1995, and very rarely have had any problems with motorists. Being out in the hills seems to draw the idiot drivers out more than commute hours do!
I ride in and out of downtown, north San Jose, Berryessa, and west San Jose rather frequently. There are very few places you can't easily get to on a bike. I live in Sunnyvale, and that part of the valley is even better for cyclists...
