The Ugly Sweater Ride – December 16th, 2016

It’s that special time of year again! On December 16th at 7:30PM come ride with San José Bike Party. We want YOU to come in your toasty ugly sweaters, with your bikes decked out in holiday lights for the best December theme, in our opinion.


On Masher! On Fixie!

Guerillaz in Da Mixx and your DJs David Bu Hau & Mr. Brandon will be bringing you the regroup beats at the mobile dance floor. We’ll be running our #LightMeUp free safety light distribution. If you don’t have a front and rear light for your bike, come see the Bike Party Birds at the start, 7:30PM, to get yours. Lights this month are provided by your donations to San José Bike Party, which have allowed us to distribute over 1000 lights so far for this program. Want to help make cycling safer in San José? Chip in over at our Donation Page.

Be visible and bring some water. We’re expecting a cool, dry evening, so wear layers to keep warm! We also encourage cyclists to ride to the start rather than drive; reducing auto traffic and parking demand.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event, but please, read and follow our “How We Ride” guidelines to keep everyone safe and to keep San Jose Bike Party rolling!
