Viking Ride! Jan 18

The Viking Ride!

San Jose Bike Party presents The Viking Ride!

Winter is Coming! Join us on the 3rd Friday of every month for San Jose Bike Party! Our theme for January is VIKING BIKING so buy/find/dig out/create a Viking helmet, prepare your battle armor and animal fur! Only the most savage, toughest riders who are brave enough will follow us into the cold, winter night!

Join us at San Jose University Quad.

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, 50 degrees ! 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!  We share the road with other vehicles.

Some helpful hints:

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