Test Ride 1 — The No Pants Ride!

When: May 28 2021 8:00PM

Where: San Jose, California

Who: San Jose Bike Party

Join us as we test the route for June’s Bike Party! SJBP relies on cyclists like you to help us test the route before we launch each big event!

Ride leader: Miles

Ride length: ~16 miles

Ride pace: Moderate (10-12 mph)

There will be brief stops at our two prospective regroup spots.

Location and route TBD– expect to start and end in or near downtown SJ.

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


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 and we frequently ride in the dark.

Having a great time and want to help? We’re always looking for volunteers to help guide riders at corners or to handle other tasks. Talk to any of the “BIRDs” (look for the “bird” logo!) for details. Or you head over to our Donation Page.
