Join us for our third test ride for March’s The Madness Ride.

SJBP relies on cyclists like you to help us test the route before we launch each big event.

Saturday, March 11th. Gathering starts at 1:30 pm. Wheels hit the street at 2pm.

Ride leader: David, Ever & Richard

Ride length: TBD

Ride pace: Casual (10-12 mph average)

Start: 345 W Santa Clara street.


There will be ~30 minute stops at each of our two prospective regroup spots.

Remember to bring water!

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
