Presentation overview: “South of the San Francisco Bay on the third Friday of every month, thousands of residents take to the streets on their bicycles to join in on the novelty   of the San José Bike Party (SJBP). For the riders, the personal and political meanings attached to the SJBP, their bikes, and the spaces they traverse, are as varied and diverse as the backgrounds of participants themselves. And yet as riders come together, they form a singular complex organism that comprises the sensory and affective foundation of the SJBP. In an effort to reach beyond the limits of sedentary data collection and of spoken and written representations, we employ evolving and hybrid methodologies, including elements of mobile video ethnography, to articulate the rich and multi-layered experiences and meanings of the SJBP. Building on the work of Justin Spinney (2015) and others, in this presentation, we explore the limits and possibilities of using technology with mobile methods—collecting data while on the move, connecting with the pulse of the ride, moving with, to, and through the beat of the bikes. We thus share a creative work in progress with the aim of developing a sense-sensitive, empathetic, (post)phenomenological representation of the SJBP.” (retrieved from
