♥San José Bike Party | August editionsjbikeparty.orgAre you ready for my long SJ party post?! You better be.
So we got our bikes and ourselves to the San José bike party last month. The weather was fantastic and it was just soooo much fun.
The eye candy in the bike party is good exercise for the brains. Everyone is so damn friendly and chatty. Well not only boys, but you see all kinds of beautiful people, for everybody. Wheeeeeeeee
He was riding with a cast, how cool is that?!
After finding these fine duo of guys and asking them to take their picture with their dope shirts and spotless bikes, they told me they wanted a photo with me – and of course I had to oblige 😉
Amongst hundreds+hundreds of people and us two roaming around with dead cell phones (was Friday night afterall) we still manage to run into our friends, and their friends. Good times!
We ended the 30+mile ride with giant smiles in our faces. Later the next day we learned they were some accidents. I think the SJ Bike Party and its force of “birds”(volunteers) that make this such a safe+fun event, do an excellent job and it is inevitable that there are always a few crazy and/or irresponsible accidents.
The few times that I have decided to do it, has been nothing but tremendous fun and a great way to feel that the color of ethnicity surround you. In San Francisco I have not spoken Spanish as much as I have in San José, during ANY of the critical masses in the last decade. And if you want to be exposed to full-time Spanglish, this is the place to learn while riding. Lesssgo, vámonos!!
That night the infamous MOGO bbq save the night. I mean Korean+tacos, just super awesome. I had some kind of late-night hungry crankyness quesadilla life saver and so did Diana. Some of the guys had hot dogs from the kart.
Also I want to say many thanks to the blog readers that took a minute to say hello. I am absolutely flattered and impressed to have met so many of you in San José, so very cool!!!
Hola all. So the SJBike party has sent an email with this note:
For the last few months Bike Party has attracted many riders who do not respect the intentions and rules of our ride, giving us all a bad reputation. For this reason, San Jose Bike Party will not be publicly posting the route for this month’s ride. Instead, the route is being distrubuted through “word of mouth” between BIRDs, friends of BIRDs, and other riders who make Bike Party fun and safe.
So I’m not sure how to pass on the map, maybe all the pirates are on tweeter +they will let you know? parlayyyy
I suspect there will be. I have the map, so comment or let me know via the facebook page and I can send it to you.
They will start in Cupertino.
So there. Go.
