Our mission: Building community through bicycling.
San Francisco Bike Party is held on the 1st FRIDAY at 8pm every month. We encourage people to bring POSITIVITY and CONTRIBUTE to good times while being RESPECTFUL to others.
The rides are FUN and SAFE with stops to DANCE and SOCIALIZE along the way. We follow PLANNED ROUTES exploring all different parts of the city each month.
Who runs it?
Created by a CO-OP, by and for bike enthusiasts, run by volunteers.
HOW WE RIDE:
– Stay in the right lane
– Stop at red lights
– Leave nothing and nobody behind
– Ride predictably and in control
– Roll past conflict
– When in doubt, “bike party!!”
This awesome event looks FIRME. If you are in the vicinity in SanJo this Thursday, check it out!
[Press release] Matthew Rodriguez and Samuel Rodriguez, creators of Shorty Fatz in San Jose, will discuss and demonstrate their custom-built bicycles at the San Jose Museum of Art on Thursday, January 6, at 5 p.m. The bike designers and artists appear as part of SJMA’s ongoing “Creative Minds” series. Admission to the talk and demonstration is free with museum admission of $8 ($5 for students and seniors, free for members. The galleries will be open until 8 p.m. on January 6.
The Museum will display three Shorty Fatz bicycles in the lobby from December 28 through January 6.
Shorty Fatz is a design and custom bicycle center created by the two Rodriguezes (who are not related). They design and manufacture custom, single-speed bicycles for enthusiasts interested in “cruisers” and fixed-gear bicycles. Shorty Fatz bikes are not mass-produced; each frame is made by hand to suit the individual’s unique features and needs. Shorty Fatz designs and fabricates all their products in San Jose. The duo has received several public art commissions, including installations for the Martin Luther King, Jr., Library and the Seven Trees Community Center and Branch Library in San Jose. Sammy Rodriguez was also one of eight California artists chosen to create an installation for a train station on the Los Angeles Metro’s Expo line. The Rodriguezes began building custom bikes in their East San Jose garage in 2007.
