East Bay Bike Party: Ski Ho’s and Speedos

 

From EBBP:


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It’s 2012 and we’re excited for our first EB Bike Party of the new year.  On Friday, January 13th (at 7:30pm) we expect to see you at MacArthur BART for the SKI HO’S AND SPEEDOS ride!

With two ways to go, we’re sure you can come up with some kind of costume for this ride. Since some ho’s outfits are remarkably like swimwear, we think you might even be able to combine the two! And don’t take the word ho too literally, you’re also encouraged to grab your pimp cup, cane, hat and cape and roll with us.  Of course, if your costume leans in the skimpy direction, just remember to dress warmly beneath.

If you want to help us test the route in advance, there will be a test ride Tuesday, January 3rd leaving from MacArthur BART at 7:30pm and another one next week which we’ll announce soon.  Your feedback matters! Here’s the FB link for tomorrow’s test ride:

The vibe on the rides has been great and we love the sense of community and responsibility we’re seeing out there.  With a new year, we expect many new riders. If you want to help them get into the swing of things, feel free to share the basics with them:

 

  • Stay Right
  • Stop At Lights
  • Ride Straight
  • Don’t Hate
  • Pack Your Trash
  • Don’t Get Smashed

As always, volunteering is encouraged and appreciated.  If you’d like to help direct people through a turn or two on ride night, it’s something that everyone on the ride benefits from.  You can find out more about how to volunteer on a test ride or by looking for the volunteer coordinator (seek out someone with a megaphone) on ride night.

If your New Year’s Resolution is to make 2012 better than 2011, the best way to kick-start that is to be with us for this month’s Bike Party.  Now shout it like it’s New Year’s Eve…

BIKE PARTY!!!!
