So what did you think of tonight’s ride?
Our robots have been hard at work in our Central Bike Party Laboratory.
What did you think of the Regroup layout?
What about Guerillaz in Da Mixx and their synchronized music machine?
Was the tall flashing light helpful in finding the music area?
What did you think of the food vendors? How can the vendor area be improved?
What do you think of the new Raven Bikes?
Did you know the Raven Bikes not only help keep the ride clean, but also can help you with minor repairs? Just ask the Raven Crew. Thanks to UBSJ – United Bicyclists of San Jose.
The leaves are turning color. Summer heat gives way to short days and cool nights. A perfect month for this month’s Robots and Long Socks Ride. So pull your long socks out of the drawer and join us for a cool evening with friends.
This month our ride starts from San Jose State University near the 7th St. and San Fernando Street campus entrance, and next to the student center. Our ride will head north through beautiful Japantown and cruise San Jose’s east side. Guerrillaz in Da Mixx will be on hand at the regroups to provide the evening’s music, just look for the flashing light on the top of the pole. This area will be a “no bikes” zone. The ride will finish up in downtown San Jose a couple of blocks from the start at San Jose City Hall Plaza. Read more
November’s theme is gonna require some extra creativity or not if you’re gonna be literal The theme is Robots and Long Socks!
So you can dress as a robot, or you can wear your funky socks, or you can dress as a robot in socks. Just don’t get your socks caught in the gears.
If you have ideas for the theme please post them below.
How was the ride? Post your thoughts below!
October is Upon us! This month’s ride marks our 6th Anniversary! That’s right, San Jose Bike Party is finally old enough for grade school.
We celebrate each October by having 3 separate official starts points. One from the South, East, and West. They all roll at 8p and they’ll unite at the 1st Regroup to create one HUGE BIKE PARTY RIDE!
This month’s theme is Dia De Los Muertos as we celebrate some merging of cultures that is unique to San Jose. Come celebrate the Day of the Dead with us!
Be safe, legal, and courteous (see How We Ride!). We share the road with other traffic. Helping cars move through smoothly makes the ride more enjoyable for everyone. Do your part to encourage good behavior! Also, please remember to turn down the volume when riding through residential areas late at night.
New this month we will have the new Raven Garbage bikes! That will be circling through the regroups and riding with us to gather up our trash. Please be respectful to them and help them keep bike party clean.
