From East Bay Bike Party :
SEPTEMBER SCHOOLYARD SELLEBRATION!!!
Interpret the theme however you like – dress like a child, come as a character from a children’s book, tv show or movie, or recreate some aspect of being a kid in school or in the schoolyard. Fun, safe schoolyard games like frisbee, hopscotch, freeze tag and jumping rope are all encouraged.
We’ll gather at Mosswood Park at 7:30pm and leave at 8pm for a tour of Oakland and Berkeley.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
-INVITE WISELY: If you’re inviting friends, make sure that they think that safety is sexy, know the Bike Party code, and arrive at the start of the ride sober
-PICK UP YOUR TRASH: This one’s simple – if you brought it in or ate/drank it, you pack out the can/wrapper/trash with you.
-VOLUNTEER: Volunteer to take a corner and lead the Bike Party through a turn. If you know you want to volunteer, either attend the test ride this Thursday (http://goo.gl/8RPDc ) or email email@example.com
-COME PREPARED: This is an unsupported ride, so bring whatever you’d bring if you went on a long solo ride. A patch kit and a bike tool are a good start. If you’re with friends, make sure that at least one of them has things you might need (including a wrench, if you ride a fixie)
-KNOW THE CODE: If you come out this Friday, this is what the people around you will expect. And you’ll make more friends if you ride safely. Making friends and meeting new people is what this ride is about, after all:
- Stay Right
- Stop At Lights
- Ride Straight
- Don’t Hate
- Pack Your Trash
- Don’t Get Smashed
See you Friday, you sexy person.
