We got there early enough. The light
was still good, and would be for a while. Bike Party in the house!
Roy had a collection of directional
BIKE PARTY signs that Cameron had made. People that signed up for
a turn were issued an arrow if they wanted one. The things looked
to be well made and light enough.
Lots of theme participation,
although some of it was rather subtle.
Some were looking forward to the
water balloon fight in an "I'm ready for this!" kind of way.
At this point the waiting was over.
We got on our bikes and headed out. Didn't even try to use the
camera again until the next regroup.
Seems to me that kids nowadays walk
a more magical path then the one my parents gave me.
About this time Virginia and I
figured out that if we hauled ass we could make the next train to
Baypoint, which would take fifteen miles out of the trip back to
her place. That would get us there around 2 AM. We went for it.
There were a lot of bicycles on when
we first shoehorned into the streetcar. People got off one or two
at a time. We talked to those two guys for a bit. They were bike
party veterans, having been going since our last pool party ride.
They lived in San Jose then, but now they live in Milpitas and San
Leandro. Still do bike party like it's religion. They got off at
Great Mall. We stayed on to Baypointe. We were the only ones that
got off there. Happy to have enjoyed another good ride with
