Like Blinking Man and our Mobile Socials, the San Jose Bike Party is about food, music, fun and, of course, bicycles. Stanford Journalism reports from San Jose ride in the video above and Nite Walk is in Vegas.
Tonight, a mere half block from my memories, I am blinking along with around 300 others now, surrounded by all manner of bicycle art, streamers, blinkers, wrapped neon, flags and reflectors. Large disco light towers are dumped into an attached carriage and flash to the rhythms of the music. One bicycle is covered with a real ram’s skull and full skeleton, another looks like Strawberry Shortcake puked rainbows all over it. There are low rider bikes, high rider bikes, scooters, mopeds, tricycles, mountain bikes, racing bikes and more.
