Dia_De_Los_MuertosFirst time?  Need a refresher? Check How We Ride!

We have something a little different this month, so don’t get scared!  We are starting the ride from 3 different locations.  (Yay, close to your house!!!)  The ride will then converge and everyone will ride together.  Many neighborhoods and many types of riders make up San Jose Bike Party, but together we ride as ONE COMMUNITY!

Find the Best Starting Location for You!

Where do you live?

  1. Downtown SJ – join a pre-ride to a meetup point (@ Cesar Chavez park, 7pm)
  2. East/Alum Rock Leg Start (@ McKee & Capitol, 8pm)
  3. South/Oak Hill Cemetery Leg Start (@ Tully/Curtner & Monterey, 8pm)
  4. West/Campbell Leg Start (@ Winchester & Campbell, 8pm)

(The route links are posted in each starting points descriptions.  Regroups are indicated by water on each map. Each route ends exactly where it started)

1.  Downtown SJ Pre-ride Start

Meet at 7:00pm at Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park.  This ride will leave at 7:05. Be there on time!!

Pre-rides from downtown will ride to the South/Oak Hill Cemetery leg start (about 3 miles), East/Alum Rock Leg Start (about 4 miles), OR to the West/Campbell leg start (about 7 miles).

If you arrive late to Cesar Chavez park, just ride down Market to 1st St which becomes Monterey Rd – you can turn Right [corrected] into the Plant Shopping Center just before Curtner/Tully, which is the Southeast/Fairgrounds leg start.
