The Mad Hatters Tea Party Ride

San Jose Bike Party presents The Mad Hatters Tea Party Ride!

Dress as your favorite Alice in Wonderland character; bike decorations also encouraged! The Mad Hatter, Alice, The White Rabbit, The Cheshire Cat, The Red Queen, The Jabberwocky, Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum, The Smoking Caterpillar, The March Hare – #WhoooooArrrrrreYooooouu?

As always on the third Friday of every month, gathering starts around 7:30. Wheels hit the street at 8pm.

Please remember to “Pack your Trash” so that we can keep Bike Party Rolling.  Leaving trash is inconsiderate and makes us unwelcome at regroup locations.

We will be running our #LightMeUp free safety light distribution at the start.  If you don’t have a front and rear light for your bike, come see the Bike Party Birds at the start, 7:30PM, to get yours.

Guerillaz in the Da Mixx will setting up Mobile Dance Floor with beats.

Be visible and bring some water. We’re expecting mild weather in the mid-50 degrees! We encourage cyclists to ride to the start rather than drive; reducing auto traffic and parking demand.   Please look at the route and print it out.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event, but please, read and follow our “How We Ride” guidelines to keep everyone safe and to keep San Jose Bike Party rolling!  We share the road with other vehicles.

Having a great time and want to help? We’re always looking for volunteers to help guide riders at corners or to handle other tasks. Talk to any of the “BIRDs” (look for the “bird” logo!) for details. Or you head over to our Donation Page.

Some helpful hints:

  1. Follow the Law
  2. Be Predictable
  3. Be Conspicuous
  4. Think Ahead
  5. Ride Ready
