San Jose Bike Party

From SJBP:

Save the date for San Jose Bike Party’s second annual Bike The Limits
Ride! Bike The Limits get its name from last year’s routing, which
rolled along the San Jose City Limits for 30, 60, or 100 miles! This
year’s route will have a similar theme. The short route will cover
about 33 miles, the middle distance will be a metric century (100km ~
62 mi), and the full ride will be 100 miles long! The routes will be
designed such that the shorter routes will follow the initial portions
of the longer routes before breaking back to the start point.

Over 250 riders participated in last year’s monumental event, and
nearly 20 finished the entire 100 mile course. Many riders achieved
their personal best mileage, and great times were had be all. See the post-ride comments for yourself on
the Bike The Limits 2010 recap page.

Stay tuned for more information on the route, test rides, and tips on
how to prepare for this ride!
