A Poignant Plea For Responsibility

We love Bike Party and we think you love it as well. That’s why we are disappointed and saddened when a small number of riders destroy the very spirit of building community. We’re not going to sugar coat this here, but the trashing, the tagging, and the public urination on park facilities, businesses, and other property has to stop. If we roll by businesses, respect them, don’t trash them. If you see someone trashing your town, take a picture, grab a BIRD or notify the police.

This must stop or this wonderful thing called Bike Party will stop. So we are asking every one to respect your home. And if you see someone trashing your town call them out.  If you love Bike Party, help keep it going.

Meet the Artist – Hippies VS. Hipsters Ride

33, San Jose

This month’s artist is Jarek (Jar as in Yard) Azevedo, a multi-talented bike partier who has contributed photos, video, and graphic artwork on many occasions. Yes those amazing Dead Presidents Ride photos were his work. Talent and hardwork are two key traits.

Visual arts are not his only passion. He also built and rides one of the synchronized music bikes you see on the ride, at regroups, and at Guerillaz in Da Mixx events.


What’s your experience with Bicycles?

Almost always had a bike from just a tyke to my late teens, but my lifestyle was absorbed into the steel cage for some time before I reclaimed the passion. Have been heavy into two wheeled motion for over four years now and have been supporting the scene with a music bike in some form for almost as long. You’ll currently find me on Blue BaBoom!

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!

Ride Reflections – Dead Presidents Ride

Written on February 22, 2014 at 12:45 AM, by

Dead Presidents RideA 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.
