Our dear bicycle friends, let us rejoice in the beauty of springtime. The sap runs strong in trees long resting for winter. The tender blossoms of the apricot tree are unfolding with their delicious fragrance. Fields of oxalis shine forth with sulfurous brilliance.
The physical Santa Cruz winter may have been gentle, but may this cycle of regrowth and renewal also melt the icy darkness that we so often carry in our hearts. Come, my friends, uplift your spirit with this wondrous ritual of collective bike riding and music.
Bike Party is definitely on, route posted below.
But per the CBDC (center for bicycle disease control) guidelines, best practice is to remain one bike’s distance away and don’t be touching other people’s handlebars!
