Kristina and I got invited to the San Jose Bike Party last Friday evening. It's this crazy event where literally 1,500 bikers met in a parking lot, then rode 17 miles across town, taking the road by shear numbers. We rode on her tandem, which worked great until it lost a spacer a mile from the end, so we had to walk it the rest of the way.
The experience was generally positive, but there was some funkiness that has started creeping into the community. People were running red lights, then running from the police when they get lit up for it. There were bystanders throwing rocks and eggs at us, which was super unfortunate, but considering how big this event is, it'd be incredible if this type thing didn't happen. We had a good time.
