TGIF - Partyyyyyyyy!!

sj bike party in the house

Well this Friday is going to seem rather quiet in comparison to last Friday. I met up with a handful of SF cool cats in hats that were heading down to Sunnyvale (where many siliconlandians live, 40 miles south of SF) to join the San José Bike Party. Here we are right before the start. I'd guesstimate about 1000-1200 people.

One of the main concerns when heading to this party as a city dweller is how the hell to get back. And I say that as in sometimes the party ends more than a few miles from caltrain later in the evening, so the trek back to the caltrain station can become a party of its own, you know - what if you miss it.

Anyways, who cares - we went, we had tons of fun. There were soooooo many teenagers, the energy was super, there were puppies, families, tons of cruisers, tons of music, I ran into coworkers, there was a couch on a bike - dogs included, new buddies, total strangers and fellow bikers that were there to have fun.
Awesome. Hellsyeah.
hey cop
"thanks cop!!!"
the motorcycle cops held the freeway exit traffic as well as many of the large (huge) boulevard busy streets.

We began in Sunnyvale and ended in downtown Palo Alto (next to Stanford University for those of you outside CA, is where the Facebookland of the west operates as well). Our group of city peeps caught a late 11PM caltrain full of Shark fans (hockey) and made it to SF a little after midnight safe and sound.

San José Bike Party is where is at, and if you haven't done it, that is all I'm gonna say because you got to be there. Fun fun fun.

Good times. Good times.
