East Bay Bike Party

From East Bay Bike Party:

Join the East Bay’s largest rolling party every second Friday.

GREEN is everywhere and this month, Bike Party, wants you to GO GREEN and celebrate this fabulous color with us!

The costume spectrum is endless, so let you minds wander and have fun with it!

Let’s make this a GREENtastic bike party!

You could be a character like The Leprechaun from those terrible horror movies in the 90s, the Green Lantern, The Hulk.. four friends could be The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or question our sanity as The Riddler.

GREEN is alive in the animal kingdom! Turtles, frogs, and toads, oh my.. snakes are GREEN and so are centipedes, spiders, lizards, and fish… personally, I’ll be praying to see a mantis costume!

There are so many shades of GREEN you could go wild and try to wear them all at once, or dazzle us showing up in GREEN paint from head to toe.

So go out and GREEN lights to adorn your bike with and lets make everyone else that sees us GREEN WITH ENVY as they watch us roll by, hootin’ and hollerin’ and have a greend ol time 🙂

BIIIIIIIIIIKE PAAAAAAAAARTY!

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.

-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 (while this is a green party, please STOP at RED)
Ride Straight
Don’t Hate
Pack Your Trash
Don’t Get Smashed

See you Friday, you sexy green machine! BIKE PARTY!!!
