East Bay Bike Party: Superhero/Supervillain Ride

From East Bay Bike Party:

Super Hero Bike Party in Hayward!!! are you ready??

Do you remember when you were a kid riding your bike and pretending you were a superhero flying through the skies? Well that’s exactly what January’s theme is going to be. Get out there and piece together your own lasso of truth, kryptonite proof cape, teleporting dancing shoes, or even a towel for a cape and an A for awesome painted on your chest. Stretch your imagination and show us what superpower you will dominate the bike party with! Sidekicks, Villians, Arch Nemeses, and Duos are encouraged…grab your friends and form your own League of Extraordinary Cyclists. This is one ride where the sky is no longer the limit!We’ll gather at Bayfair BART Station at 7:30 pm, and roll at 8:00pm.

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. Find the volunteer coordinator – the one with the turn-by-turn route sheets – at 7:30pm to reserve yours.

-COME PREPARED: This is an unsupported ride, so bring whatever you’d bring if you went on a long solo ride. A tube patch kit, co2 or pump, multi-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: The following is what your fellow riders will expect of you. 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 superheroes. BIKE PARTY!!!

A Rose By Another Name: San Jose’s Bike Party

A crowd assembles at the beginning of San Jose Bike Party, April 16, 2010. Let’s just say right away that Critical Mass is a bike party, and the San Jose Bike Party has a lot more similarities to Critical Mass than differences. A half-dozen San Francisco and Berkeley Critical Mass veterans took a field trip […]

Why Townsend Street Needs Protected Bike Lanes at 4th and King Station

|
Anyone who uses Townsend Street’s eastbound bike lane to commute to Caltrain is sure to run into a litany of obstacles: Taxis, shuttles, private autos, and Muni buses obliterate the poor bike lane in the fight for curb space. (Much of the curb is reserved as a taxi stand.) Sam McCandlish sent in this video, filmed by a friend of his, showing […]
