(*However, we’re meeting in the flat parking lot across the street on the other side of Milpitas Blvd.)
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
