What is Bike Party?

We are a mobile party that travels between 15-20 miles by bicycle through the streets of San Jose and the South Bay on the third Friday of every month. Each month features a different starting location and route that shall remain (somewhat) secret until the week of the ride!

We break the ride into three segments with two party stop regroups where you can get down on the mobile dance floor by Guerillaz In Da Mixx featuring Mario De La Torre aka DJ MdlT; or sample the tasty treats from our loyal food truck vendors.

We have an *optional theme* for those that want to dress up in costume. Our theme for August is The Stranger Things (from the 80s) Ride. Dress as your favorite character from the tv show, Stranger Things – or any sort of Bitchen’ 80s Attire. Bike decorations loudly encouraged!

Tell a friend. Share the event.
