SJ Bike Party: Luau Ride

From San Jose Bike Party:

This Friday SJBP is throwing a bicycle Luau through the fair streets of San Jose and the south bay. Get ready to be Lei’d and bring your best beachwear while we celebrate bikes Hawaiian style.

Be safe, legal, and courteous (see How We Ride!). Or be prepared for a ticket from the 5-O.  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.

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 cicle 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.
