We’ve all heard stories about people discovering or rediscovering a love for bicycling after seeing or participating in San Jose Bike Party. Or tales from people who have been inspired to ride further than they ever have before. Many are learning that the bicycle is a viable mode of transportation for commuting or running errands. Others are seeing their health and fitness levels improve dramatically from getting off the couch and into the saddle.

And it’s not all just about the bicycle. The diversity of Bike Party ridership is an amazing sight to see, and many friendships and other bonds have formed during the ride.
