The Monopoly Board is back!

We had so much fun during October’s Monsters vs. Aliens ride that we decided to do it again and the famed outdoor Monopoly Board. So we’ll bring the food, music and the lights, you bring your dance. This is going to be fun.
This month’s ride will be starting in Willow Glen and after a regroup downtown we’re headed to South San Jose. The weather should be nice with only the smallest chance of some drizzles.
We’ve got two DJ’s this month collectively known as Delete Yourself, but also know as David Bu Hau and Mr. Brandon. Check them out on Soundcloud. This should be epic. Happy New Year.
Be safe, legal, and courteous (more info below from 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.
All that riding can make a bike partier hungry, so here’s whats cooking:
BIRDs are our wonderful volunteers that attempt to keep everyone on our rides safe. Please be respectful of their directions and thank them for all of the effort they put into the ride. If you want to help out and make your mark on Bike Party, please join the BIRDs at the volunteer circle prior to the start of the ride.

Ravens are the elite group of BIRDs that make sure we leave no trace behind by cleaning up after the party at regroups. They are essential to keeping the party going and they can’t do it by themselves. When you see any of them with a trashbag collecting your trash, please thank them! They are a really cool bunch. Please bring trash bags and help us leave no trace.

If you are driving to the start please park away from vendors and our meeting spot.
Please be careful of VTA Light Rail Trains in the area.
Feeder rides are a great way to get to Bike Party They allow you to make great friends and get to know people who live near you. They also make it super easy to get back home as a group as most folks ride home with the group they arrived with. You save the planet and save on parking while getting a little bit more exercise. It’s all good.
