The Rapture Ride – Oct 21st

Happy 4th Anniversary SJBP!!!!


As with many of our Anniversary rides we will be doing something special.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS. Dress up. Come out & ride with us.

Details in the posting

Theme: The Rapture

This ride marks our 4th year riding together. Coincidentally, it also marks the date Harold Camping has predicted the world will end. I, for one, can’t think of a better way to end the world than with a bike ride, so please join us and watch for fire falling from the sky.

-Disclaimer: On the off chance that the world doesn’t end during our ride, please dress up in theme as angels or demons so he can save face.

FEATURING 4 starts in various outlying neighborhoods of the South Bay which will all start at the same time.

After a couple of miles we will merge into one giant ride. Be safe, legal, and courteous (see How We Ride!). We share the road with other traffic. Helping cars move through smoothly makes the ride more enjoyable for everyone. Do your part to encourage good behavior! Also, please remember to turn down the volume when riding through residential areas late at night.



BIRDs are our wonderful volunteers that attempt to keep everyone on our rides safe. Please be respectful of their directions and thank them for all of the effort they put into the ride.


Ravens are the elite group of BIRDs that make sure we leave no trace behind by cleaning up after the party at regroups. They are essential to keeping the party going. If you see any of them with a trashbag collecting your trash, please thank them and if you are so inclined please join them! They are a really cool bunch. Please bring trash bags and help us leave no trace.

How We Ride:

If you follow these eight rules, Bike Party will be safe and a positive place for riders, drivers, pedestrians, and the community.

1. Stay in the Right Lane – NEVER ride the sidewalk. NEVER ride against oncoming traffic
2. Leave Nothing Behind – Don’t trash San Jose
3. Stop at Red Lights
4. Ride Straight, Ride Predictability – Slower Riders should stay to the right
5. Roll Past Conflict
6. Leave No One Behind
7. Ride Sober! It’s illegal and dangerous to ride a bicycle inebriated
8. Communicate to Fellow Riders! (We need your help in encouraging everyone to follow the rules!)

Where to be:

Wheels hit the Street at 8:00 so be there early for the pre party …

There will be 4 starts/routes this month they are as follows.:
