Obon Ride Sprint Drag RacesThe month’s Obon Ride will start  from Downtown San Jose and pass through Japantown before regrouping at the Berryessa Flea Market (Maybury Rd. entrance) for an amazing evening of Taiko performances and two popular San Jose DJs. DJ Live and DJ Sharkie will be on hand  to provide dance beats at our big regroup at the Berryessa Flea Market. Guerillaz in Da Mixx will also be coordinating six synchronized music bikes along the ride with a bike party playlist.

The ride returns to downtown finishing at Plaza de Cesar Chavez.

All your favorite food trucks, beats, and of course bikes. Due to the longer regroup we will also have two porta potties on site. See map for location.
