SJBP relies on cyclists like you to help us test the route before we launch each big event. Join us Friday evening as we test the route for May’s Wizards, Witches, and Magic Bike Party.

Friday, April, 28th. Gathering starts at 7:30pm. Wheels hit the street at 8pm.

Ride leader: Julie

Ride length: 17ish miles

Ride pace: casual (10-13mph)

Start: San Jose City Hall


There will be 20+/- minute stops at each of our two prospective regroup spots.

These small group rides are a great way to meet new people, catch up with old friends, or just get out for a social ride. While you’re pedaling, we’ll count on you to help us keep an eye out for potential route hazards. Your feedback will help us adjust the route and keep all of Bike Party safe!

Things to watch out for:

– road or bike lane construction

– hazardous railroad crossings

– poorly signed lane changes

– tricky turns

– problematic regroup spots

– notable debris in the road

– dangerous traffic patterns
