***Time changed to 6:30 pm ***
Sorry, but due to the recent heat wave and smoke problems we've been forced to change the start time.
***********************************

This is a SLOW RIDE so no one gets dropped. If you new to San Jose Bike Party test rides this is a good ride to get acquainted with How We Ride.

If your interested in helping out for future rides, just introduce yourself to the ride leader.

VISION ZERO SAN JOSE
The San Jose City Council is expected to adopt a Vision Zero plan [PDF] tomorrow, making it the third major city in the Bay Area and the tenth in the nation to commit to ending traffic deaths. But San Jose isn't setting a timeline to achieve this goal. “For years, San Jose created a roadway ...
