San Jose Bike Party: Hillbilly Hoedown Ride

From SJ Bike Party:

Lock up yer sister cause this month we are gonna be exploring the Silicon Valley Hillbilly style. Think banjoes, coveralls, Jawharps, and Washboards, Teeth are optional. Daisy Dukes should be fine too as long as you don’t get too cold.

While The Warm summer days have dwindled it still seems like good weather for a hoedown this friday but as always you have to judge for yerself.

Being Neighborly is the Hillbilly way (see How We Ride!). lest we start off another feud like the legendary Hatfield’s and McCoy’s Turn down yer tunes after 10
