San Jose Bike Party's theme this
month was "Octoberfest".
Virginia organized our outfits. We
got there early. The food trucks were all set up, but the crowd
wasn't thick yet.
This ride was SJBP's 9th
Anniversary. Eric got us a cake. It was delicious. Whipped cream
icing and fresh strawberries between the layers.
The "Light me up! program" was
giving out these LED light sets at the beginning to people that
didn't even have "see me" lights.
Before we started rolling Tanner
made an announcement about his Cranksgiving charity ride, coming
up Sunday November 13th. It'll be an alleycat food drive
benefitting the Second Harvest Food Bank. Register at
Virginia and I birded the right turn
after bike party did 13th St. I got a lift of watching people
notice her. She was a dancing bundle of energy, with the rainbow
wig and blinking sign. So many people broke into a grin after
considering the sight for a moment or two.
Boone was pushing "NO ON B". I gave
out most of the Jill Stein for President cards I had. I figured
giving someone a Stein at Octoberfest was on topic, even if it was
Lauren was brandishing a baguette
and serving wine in protest ov the "Octoberfest" theme. She was in
a "Viva la France!" headspace.
By this time everyone was smiling
and bubbly and having a good time.
