East Bay Bike Party

From East Bay Bike Party:

A mobile party for riders of all ages, experience levels, and bike types, to meet, ride, and play together in the streets on the second Friday of the month.

For an idea of what we’re starting up, check out the the San Jose Bike Party, Midnight Ridazz in L.A., and San Francisco Bike Party.
