NEW DATE:  Saturday March 26th – 11AM

It’s time to let the wee ones ride! San Jose Bike Party presents the Kidz Bike Party Superhero Ride, the first of 2016 and part of our continuing series of rides which focus on getting kids excited about bike riding and giving them an opportunity to participate in group rides whose routes are created specifically for their needs.

Note: Please be mindful of your costume designs to assure that no pieces, strings or capes hang loose which might get caught in wheels or otherwise impede your child’s ability to ride safely.

The route starts at Watson Park and will just be a few miles. Follow the event on Facebook to keep up to date.

Do you like footies? We like footies.

It’s the best kind of sleepover. San Jose Bike Party! Come celebrate with us March 18th at 7:30PM.

Our theme this month is pajamas. SO, bring your bunnies, onesies, twosies, shorties, stripies… whatever! Just don’t show up naked.

Guerillaz in Da Mixx and DJ ZEN will be bringing you the regroup beats at the mobile dance floor. We’ll also be running our #LightMeUp free safety light distribution. If you don’t have a front and rear light for your bike, come see the Bike Party Birds at the start to get yours. Lights this month are provided courtesy of The Awesome Foundation.

Grab your lights and meet the birds at the red dot!

We’ll also have Porta Potties at each regroup!

Be visible, bring some water and wear layers to keep the cool night air out. We also encourage cyclists to ride to the start rather than drive; reducing auto traffic and parking demand.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event, but please, read and follow our “How We Ride” guidelines to keep everyone safe and to keep San Jose Bike Party rolling!
