Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36953705

Start: San Jose City Hall

There will be brief stops at our two prospective regroup spots. We’ll try to keep the first stop to around 15 minutes so that we have more time at the second regroup, about 30 minutes. The last leg is pretty short and the second regroup is close to downtown in case riders need to get back earlier.

These small group rides are a great way to meet new people, catch up with old friends, or just get out for a social ride. While you’re pedaling, we’ll count on you to help us keep an eye out for potential route hazards. Your feedback will help us adjust the route and keep all of Bike Party safe!

Things to watch out for:

– road or bike lane construction

– hazardous railroad crossings

– poorly signed lane changes

– tricky turns

– problematic regroup spots

– notable debris in the road

– dangerous traffic patterns
