I took my trike for my first SJ Bike Party last Friday, not knowing what to expect, and this is what I posted on my fb page afterwards: "I have never seen so many or such a variety of cycles, cyclists, costumes, boomboxes on trailers, and lights, what a sensory overload, 18 miles of crazy in the dark, but oh so joyful. I hung out with two other bent trikes at the two party stops, was amazed to see several 2 wheel bents among the thousands, and was so glad I was on three. Start wasn't until almost 8:30, I got home at 12:30, the dancing was still going strong in Lowe's parking lot."
It seems they don't announce the route until earlier in the week, and at that time I will post here and identify somewhere we can park and meet as a group before going to the start together. There were about 8-10 food trucks at both Regroup lots, and as a group, we can head back to our cars much earlier, unless people want to stay to dance and try to talk over the loud music. There were some fireworks this ride, and I'm sure there will be a lot more in July. This wasn't Daryl's first SF Bike Party, so he may have more suggestions. http://www.sjbikeparty.org/
