Friday October 19th 2013
It’s time for another fun filled event. Come join us for a awesome bike ride through the city.

*Remember helmets and lights are required to participate*

–What is a Bike Party?–

A Bike Party is a welcoming, family-friendly, all-inclusive, FREE event consisting of a leisurely-paced bicycle ride (complete with music and mechanical support) and ending with a post-ride party.

The group pedals through the city at a slow, welcoming pace appropriate for riders of all ages and capabilities. You get a chance to make new friends, learn new routes, and have fun on your bike!


We’ll meet at Dippy the Dino (on Forbes Ave in Oakland, in front of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, across from the Cathedral of Learning).


We’ll meet at 6pm and leave at 6:30pm.

(Won’t be off work in time? We’ll post the route later so that you can catch up with us along the way.)

–How long is the ride?–

Around 8-10 miles.

–What’s the route?–

–What should I bring?–

Helmets. Lights. A bike to put those lights on. And all your friends!

–What happens in the case of rain/snow/zombie apocalypse?–

On the afternoon of the ride, we’ll decide whether conditions are safe enough to ride. Look for updates here, on Twitter, and on our website a couple of hours before the start of the ride if things are looking sketchy.

I broke my big toe last night at soccer. I will be there though. Prepare yourselves for my complaining the whole time.

@Stu, Boo.

This was an excellent event!

Music, evidently by Dead Maus. I re-created my “I’m alive!” dance for some of the curious. (It was better in the original.)

The only drawback was that I didn’t see Mr Marvelous there.

@Mick sorry for missing the ride, unfortunately I am off the bike for a week or two. I will be there for the next ride.
