Spring is getting closer and our theme for March is Hippies VS. Hipsters .
So let’s get ready for spring by joining us on our monthly test rides. This is a great way to meet new people, test out the route, give some feedback, and say “Hey, I tired of just riding, I wanna give back….I want to volunteer to keep this thing going.”

For those of you who were not able to come out and ride yesterday; well more like early morning, it was a blast. The route was short, flat, and geared more towards meeting others and having fun. Guerillaz in Da Mixx was out with a couple of synchronized music bikes to provide an Irish infused playlist thanks to Noreen Fortune, a true Dubliner.
The Mercury News (Bay Area News Group) was on hand to get some great photos. (click here for the link) We also got some coverage from the NBC affiliate KNTV-11.
Let’s do this next year!

A big thanks to all of you who joined us for the Dead Presidents Ride. Your country thanks you, and we salute you o’ faithful bike party people. We are always amazed when people ride with respect towards their fellow cyclists.
So what did you think? How was the route? Too short? Too Long? Just right?
How about Kenny Belaey, World Cup Mountain Bike Trials Champion? We had two music stages this time. Any comments?
How about vendors? Did you like the selection of bike party food? Were there any lines or did you have to wait too long? What could we do better?
Leave any constructive comments below. We loved to hear your suggestions. All we ask is that you are be civil in your suggestions. Better yet would love for you to help out by being a BIRD. If interested come out on a test ride and introduce yourself.
Thank you San Jose. You’re amazing.
