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

Join us on Thursday, April 11 as we test the route for April’s “It’s 4/19 Got A Minute?” Ride. Gathering starts at 6:30pm. Wheels hit the street at 7pm.

Meet: Santa Teresa Light Rail / VTA Parking Lot (South Side); 6360 Santa Teresa Blvd; San Jose, CA 95119

Ride leader: SJ Rides!

Ride length: 15 miles

Ride Pace: Moderately Fast / Brisk! (14-15mph minimum)


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

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

San Jose Bike Party is awesome because YOU ROLL OUT WITH US. Join us. Bring your crew!



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

Ride sober.

Stop at red lights.

Stay to the right.

Pack your trash.

Roll past conflict.

Be nice.

Remember, you are responsible for your own behavior. All participants ride at their own risk.
