Robots and Long Socks Ride – Nov 15 @ 8 PM

Written on November 12, 2013 at 11:00 AM, by

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.

The Dia De Los Muertos II Ride – Oct 18 @8PM

Written on October 13, 2013 at 10:01 AM, by

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.

The 80s Night Ride

Written on September 16, 2013 at 7:19 PM, by

This Friday we will be riding to the best of the 80s as we try to remember what we loved about the 80s. Think hair bands; leotards and leg warmers; and riding past the moon with ET.   Please remember to 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.

SJBP Tours Tour de Fat – Sept 21st

Written on September 12, 2013 at 6:57 PM, by

Come one, come all that special time of year is near. Just before summer calls it quits in exchange for fall, we get one last day of fun, adventure, and festive tom-foolery on our bicycles!! Oh, and did I mention the beer festival? That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it’s time yet again to make the journey from the South Bay up the peninsula to Golden Gate Park in SF for the 2013 Tour de Fat Festival! Tour de Fat is brought to you by a partnership between the good people from New Belgium Brewing Co. as well as the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. So if you go and have a good time just be sure to thank all the great volunteers who make it possible.

Those of you who have gone in years past may already know why we so lovingly refer to the event as Bicycle Christmas and for those who don’t well, the chance to experience it does come but once a year. We will be taking Caltrain up to SF and from there we will embark on a guided ride through the streets of San Francisco to Golden Gate Park. Space on the Caltrain may be limited so to accommodate as many riders as possible we will be taking both the 10am train as well as the 10:30 Baby Bullet train. Look for the Bike Party group in the southern most car, brings snacks/beverages to share. Both trains will arrive in SF at the King & 4th st Station by 11:45am. Please RSVP using the Facebook. Hope to see you all there!
