I Saw You

Pantless Ranter


In response to 'Pantless CUI' (I Saw You, Nov. 1): I'm a San Jose Bike Party rider, and the July 'No Pants' ride was my first ride. There were a lot of drunken assholes on that ride, and plenty more on subsequent rides. I've seen plenty of inebriated riders cause accidents and damage property. San Jose Bike Party does not condone drinking and cycling. It's illegal and dangerous. They also don't condone riding the sidewalk. This is expressly written in their 'How We Ride' statement on the website. Too bad she got nailed a block from home. She got what she deserved and is obviously bitter that she got caught! This was no different than the riders that were ticketed for failing to stop at a red light or some other traffic violation along the ride. Just because a bunch of other people were doing it, does not mean it's OK!
