We may not have x-ray vision or the ability to shoot webs from our hands, but being at Bike Party is the next best thing to being a superhero!
Dig out your cape, put your undies on OVER your tights, and get ready to ride around G̶o̶t̶h̶a̶m̶ ̶C̶i̶t̶y̶ San Jose with all your superhero pals!
What is San Jose Bike Party?
We’re a rolling party that travels between 15-20 miles by bicycle (or scooter, unicyle, tricycle, roller skates, etc!) 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 remains (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 with Guerillaz In Da Mixx.
Bike decorations loudly encouraged!
