 Summertime and the dressin’ is easy.No Pants Ride Tri_Logo

Skirts, kilts, shorts, boxers, skorts, whatever. Celebrate the warm evenings of August and join us for the return of the No Pants Ride.  The month’s 21 mile ride will start  from the Strike Brewing Co. on 10th St. and pass through south San Jose. Our DJ team is Swell Sessions, composed of David Bu Hau and Mr. Brandon. Swell Sessions DJ team and the mobile dance floor are brought to you by Guerillaz in Da Mixx.  The ride returns for a finish at Strike Brewing.  We will be riding a 20+ mile route so bring lights and some water. We will have relief tents (porta pees) at Regroup 1 near the dance floor so check the Regroup 1  photo.

We encourage cyclists to ride to the start rather than drive; reducing auto traffic and parking demand. As always San Jose Bike Party encourages riders to review our “How We Ride” guide. Everyone is welcome to attend this event.

Just need the route? It’s here.

SJ Bike Party Presents the Obon Ride

The Obon festival was a huge success. We had a playground of over 10 acres with San Jose Taiko starting us off. We also had ten music bikes with DJ Sharkie mixing the playlist as well  and  fire poi with Palm Who?. The San Jose Bike Party video crew was there to record the fun.

No Pants Ride 2015 – Theme Teaser

Let’s get creative

August is our hottest month of the year, so what a great month to have our No Pants Ride. This is always a fun ride to get creative.

Just remember, anything but pants. How about grass skirts, kilts, bathing suits, togas, robes, dresses (even on guys), sarongs, coats, bikinis. Check out some theme costumes from some of our earlier No Pants Rides.

August 21, 2015 at 7:30pm. Wheels hit the street at 8:00 pm. Start location and route to be announced at least 24 hours before ride time.
