East Bay Bike Party: Sharpie Ride

From East Bay Bike Party:

August’s ride will go down like this:

It will start out with plain white clothes and end with raging rainbows of awesome collaboration. The SHARPIE RIDE will be a fine time of flying colors and emerging friendships, preparing you for a future where fun is defined by being drawn on by your friends.

THEME: SHARPIE RIDE – BRING SHARPIES AND WHITE SHIRTS (and/or other draw-on-able clothing)

We will be rolling out from Rockridge bart at 8:00 PM, so get there 7:30. There will be several scavenger hunts (you’ll have to get people to sign/draw certain things on you), for which we will be giving out prizes that include but are not limited to: big hugs and friendly smiles.

BONUS: We will be rolling by several of the Berkeley Student Cooperatives, and we will use our mighty bicycle speaker powers to summon crunchy cooperative spirits onto our ride! Let’s welcome them and show them what Bike Party is all about:

HOW WE RIDE:

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

BRING: Lights, Layers, Locks, Water, Snacks and a Positive Attitude (i.e be ready for fun)

BIKE PARTY!!!
