PLEASE LIGHT UP YOUR BIKE.
Headlights are required by law and tail lights are strongly suggested. We also recommend you light up your whole bike! Being seen can save your life. Besides, why not make a spectacle of yourself! Bring your own party to bike party! Bike decorations loudly encouraged!
How We Ride!
If you follow these rules, Bike Party will be safe and a positive place for riders, drivers, pedestrians, and the community
Stop at red lights.
Stay to the right.
Pack your trash.
Roll past conflict.
Remember, you are responsible for your own behavior. All participants ride at their own risk. Please ride predictably.
What is San Jose Bike Party?
We’re a rolling party that travels between 15-20 miles by bicycle (or scooter, unicycle, tricycle, roller skates, etc!) through the streets of San Jose and the South Bay on the third Friday of every month. Each month features a different starting location and route that remains (somewhat) secret until the week of the ride!
We break the ride into three segments with two party stop regroups where you can get down on the mobile dance floor with Guerillaz In Da Mixx.
Bike Party is awesome because YOU ROLL OUT WITH US. Join us. Bring your crew!
Do you want to help make the magic happen? Message us about how you can help!
We need volunteers to:
– help make sure everybody turns at the right places.
– ride our RAVEN trash trikes.
– help plan each month’s ride!
