♥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.
sunset + myriads of bikes
Mi red limbs match that crazy sombrero little señor up there
The bike party is super fun and there are a tremedous amount of young teenagers, something you don’t typically see in abundance around San Francisco bicycle events at all. You know you in San José bike party when teenage boys are yelling at you left and right BIKE PAR-TAYYY
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
this nice guy had just arrived from a trip to Europe, he told me he had taken his bike – sound system included.
Wattaaa flirt he was!!
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!
Chespirito aka Miguel is in the house
Miguel’s brother y cousin
Nyle y Alex with Diana
Alejandro was our DJ for the 2nd half of the night. and I cannot lie.
He even let me pose as bike DJ. oh hai.
glow worms. there was glow sticks everywhere!
bright star! – Diana couldn’t stop smiling+laughing the whole ride =) so awesome!
hey baby – que pasó?!
and los super handsome guys that master the old-school + rad beats behind Powered by Beans! I hearts them
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!!!
