First of all a big thank you to the San Jose Bike Party Birds. They did an amazing job last night covering corners and the entrances to the regroups. Next month thank them personally. They are a big part of what makes this ride tick. Also thanks to the Raven Bike crew. They have been leaving our ride starts and regroups cleaner than before the ride. That is an amazing feat.

Yes it is getting colder; and that means sweater time. But not just any old sweater. We want you wearing the UGLIEST sweater you got in the closet. Let’s celebrate the season by celebrating tacky sweaters. Who knows, if you want we can hold an ugly sweater contest.
If you missed last night’s volunteer meeting at Sperry Station/Ghisallo Cyclery we had a packed house. We started with a reading of ideas taken off of our Facebook Page. Some of the contenders were; Elmer Fudd vs.The Easter Wabbit, People of Wal-Mart, That One Ride, Rainbows and Unicorns and others.
And the winners are:
- February – The Dead Presidents Ride
- March- Hippies & Hipsters
- April – Flower Power
- May – Ride of the Gods
Don’t forget January’s ride theme is Feathers & Fur.

This month’s artwork is from Teri “T-Bone” Nguyen. It is inspired by the geometry found in knitted sweaters and 8-bit video games alike, along with the artwork of Charles M. Schulz, of course with a few liberties taken here and there. Teri is an all-around creative juggernaut with a bike that goes everywhere! For 28 years T-Bone has been living and working with locals who are just as passionate about driving movements for community enrichment. Read more

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.
