Community Mural Bike Ride
Be part of a guided bicycle ride visiting the many murals that celebrate and affirm the history and experiences of San Jose’s neighborhoods.
The ~12 mile ride will visit and share the history and significance of 10+ murals throughout San Jose’s Downtown, Japantown, Mayfair, East Side, and Gardner communities, sparking conversations about community building, art, and activism. We will ride at a comfortable pace, taking advantage of calm streets to each location.
Juan Carlos Araujo of Empire Seven Studios, and who has played a role in the development of San Jose’s newest murals, will co-lead the ride, offering insight on the murals along with other invited guests. Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, the area's bike advocacy organization, will be providing volunteers to assist with bike repair along the route.
This independently-organized ride is inspired by Silicon Valley De-Bug’s “Debugging 100 Days,” a proactive response from San Jose and the South Bay to the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency in order to demonstrate unity against his hateful agenda.
*NO MUSIC BIKES PLEASE* Our soundtrack will be the sounds of the neighborhood!
