Join us as we test the route for August’s Bike Party!
SJBP relies on cyclists like you to help us test the route before we launch each big event!
Meet at 12:30, roll at 1!
Ride leader: Rick
Ride length: <15 miles
Ride pace: Party Pace
Start: San Jose City Hall
There will be stops (probably about 30 minutes or so depending on how spread out the riders are) at our two prospective regroup spots.
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
