San Jose Bike Party

From SJ Bike Party:

This months theme is PURPLE. Mix blue and red and see what happens. Think bruises, Barney the purple dinosaur and Purple Rain.  As the summer warms up, we really need additional folks to volunteer to help the awesome people who make up the birds and keep the party going. Helping the community out is always in theme.

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.
Information on the route and more after the drop …

BIRDs
BIRDs are our wonderful volunteers that attempt to keep everyone on our rides safe. Please be respectful of their directions and thank them for all of the effort they put into the ride. If you want to help out and make your mark on Bike Party, please join the BIRDs at the volunteer circle prior to the start of the ride.

Ravens
Ravens are the elite group of BIRDs that make sure we leave no trace behind by cleaning up after the party at regroups. They are essential to keeping the party going and they can’t do it by themselves. When you see any of them with a trashbag collecting your trash, please thank them! They are a really cool bunch. Please bring trash bags and help us leave no trace.

How We Ride
If you follow these simple rules, Bike Party will be safe and a positive place for riders, drivers, pedestrians, and our community.

Volunteer Circle Location (TBA before the ride)
Feeder rides
Feeder rides are a great way to get to Bike Party They allow you to make great friends and get to know people who live near you. They also make it super easy to get back home as a group as most folks ride home with the group they arrived with. You save the planet and save on parking while getting a little bit more exercise. It’s all good.

    Loud music, disrespectful riders yelling at me walking my dog…not a fan! Bunch of thug kids yelling and cutting off cars and playing super loud music in my neighborhood (at 10:00 pm). Is this what you’re all about? You should rethink your objective.
