Dia de Los Muertos Ride! Oct 19th


Dia de Los Muertos Ride!

Leave your Mortal Coil at home and enjoy the freedom of the Afterlife.

Join us in the sprit of the holiday, and let’s gather on bikes to celebrate and remember friends and family members who have taken the “long ride”, and help support their spiritual journey.

Join us at Plaza de César Chávez, 1 Paseo De San Antonio, San Jose, CA.

Gathering starts around 7:30. Wheels hit the street at 8pm.

Please remember to “Pack your Trash” so that we can keep Bike Party Rolling.  Leaving trash can prevent us from returning to a Regroup location.

Guerillaz in the Da Mixx will be bringing the beats on the Mobile Dance Floor.  We’re thrilled to 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. 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 Cool but dry weather, 60s ! We also encourage cyclists to ride to the start rather than drive; reducing auto traffic and parking demand.   Please look at the route and print it out.

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!

Some helpful hints:

  1. Follow the Law
  2. Be Predictable
  3. Be Conspicuous
  4. Think Ahead
  5. Ride Ready
