San Jose Bike Party: Halloween Ride

From sjbikeparty.org:

This Friday we will be celebrating SJBP’s 5th year with a Halloween theme. Think ghosts, goblins, zombies and other creatures of the night. Oh, since it’s also a birthday party, a party hat is in theme as well. Hopefully someone is gonna bring CAKE!

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.

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.

  1. Stop at lights
  2. Stay to the right
  3. Pack your Trash
  4. Roll Past Conflict
  5. Ride Sober
  6. Be nice

The “Bike Yield Law”: It’s How Captain Sanford Rolls, Too

|
Even John Sanford is not immune to practicing the safe, common-sense ethic that most people on bikes use to negotiate stop signs. SFPD’s Park Station captain is the latest officer to be filmed within the Park District executing the completely normal practice of slowing and yielding, and not necessarily coming to a full stop, during a ride with bike advocates last […]
