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

Saturday, July 2. Gathering starts at 5:30pm. Wheels hit the street at 6 pm.

Ride leader: Tian + DavidK

Ride length: 15-ish miles

Ride pace: Casual (10-12 mph average)

Start: Milpitas BART*

Milpitas BART; 1755 S Milpitas Blvd, Milpitas, CA 95035

(*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
