SJBP relies on cyclists like you to help us test the route before we launch each big event. Join us Thursday evening as we test the route for May’s #LuchaLibre Bike Party.

Start: Santa Teresa Light Rail Station Parking Lot; 6360 Santa Teresa Blvd; San Jose 95119 —> South side of VTA in large parking lot.


There will be stops at each of our two prospective regroup spots. Remember to bring lights and layers!

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
