Meet: St. James Park (2nd/St. James)

Bring your snacks and beverages; along with lights, layers, locks, and tools. #BePrepared #SelfSuffucient

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.

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!
