Visit www.cancercarepoint.org/events/gardenparty to register.

Sign up for trail crew

The city’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department has scheduled volunteer opportunities through December at Alum Rock Park. Volunteers can sign up online at tinyurl.com/AlumRockVolunteer to be part of the Alum Rock Trail Crew, a group that helps maintain the hiking trails that have been heavily used during the pandemic. The next volunteer day is Aug. 8.

Map your bike ride

Looking to get outside but having trouble finding the road less traveled? New Santa Clara County bike maps are now available for residents whose neighborhood rides are getting a little old.

Valley Transportation Authority released a comprehensive bike trail map, found online at www.vta.org/go/maps, with distinctions between bike lanes on streets, bike boulevards and other types of paths in San Jose. The streets are also rated by how dangerous they are to riders, so cyclists of all ages and skill levels can find a suitable place to cruise.

Zoom away stress

Close out the week with a little mindfulness, with the help of the San Jose Public Library. Each Friday, 4-5 p.m., the library holds virtual Zoom meditation classes. The sessions focus on Sahaja meditation, a practice focused on relieving stress. The events are free, but space is limited, so advance registration is required at tinyurl.com/SJPLMeditation.

I Can Already Hear the Whining: Florida Sheriff Mandates No Masks for Deputies

Simon Cowell could soon return to Americas Got Talent after e-bike crash: Howie Mandel

Simon Cowell is doing “spectacularly well” after breaking his back in three places — and could even soon return to “America’s Got Talent,” according to co-star Howie Mandel.

The funnyman admitted to E! News that Cowell’s serious injury — after falling off a new high-powered electric bike at his LA home — had thrown the return of the talent show into “disarray.”

“We were worried about our friend, and our boss, and our leader, Simon Cowell,” Mandel said.

But the 60-year-old Brit was “doing spectacularly well, considering,” Mandel insisted, confirming he was already walking around.

“The latest I’ve heard is that after a six-hour operation, and some fused discs, and the rod put in his back, yesterday, he was up on his feet, already, he’s already mobile!” the “Deal or No Deal” star said.

“So, as I’ve been saying to a few other people, I wouldn’t count out seeing Simon again before this season’s end,” Mandel insisted of the assumption Cowell would be forced to miss the full AGT season.

Cowell broke his back in three places — coming within an inch of cutting his spine and facing possible paralysis — while showing off his fancy new $20,000 high-powered e-bike to his 6-year-old son, Eric, and 14-year-old stepson, Adam, outside his Malibu, Calif., pad, friends have said.

The bike suddenly did a wheelie, sending Cowell flying to the ground.

The star tweeted Sunday, “Some good advice . . . If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.”

The bike he was on at the time goes so fast, up to 60 mph, that it’s been banned from the open road in the UK.
