San Jose Bike Party: Sharks Ride

From sjbikeparty.org:

Spring has sprung and this month we will be celebrating the San Jose Sharks. Bleed teal or start growing out your beard for the Sharks’ Beard-a-thon.

The Sharks are in the playoffs; the forecast for next week looks clear and the city of San Jose is planning on installing a bunch of new bike lanes. What’s not to love?

Be safe, legal, and courteous (see How We Ride!). Weshare 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.
