SJBP – Test Ride 2: The Aloha Freaky Tiki Ride!

When: Jun 03 2022 6:30PM – 9:30PM

Where: 200 E Santa Clara St, San Jose, CA 95113-1903, United States

Who: San Jose Bike Party


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

Friday, June 3rd. Gathering starts at 6:30pm. Wheels hit the street at ~7:15pm.

Ride leader: Rick

Ride length: 15-ish miles

Ride pace: Moderate (11-13 mph average)

Start: San Jose City Hall


Tonight also marks the unveiling of Wayfinder: Juan Carlos Araujo, a public art project commissioned by SJMA. 40 streetlight banners designed by Araujo with bright, ebullient colors and dynamic imagery are installed along East Santa Clara Street between Market and 20th streets. Juan Carlos will be at the start to say a few words about this project, and we will pass some of the banners at the start of the ride.

There will be 20 minute 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
