East Bay Bike Party

From EBBP:

awesome 80s bike party

Whatchu talkin’ about Willis? Second Friday is coming up, and I pity the fool that chooses to skip out on bike party this month – we’re going Back to the Future!  Uh, well actually back to the 1980s!

Break out the legwarmers, parachute pants, amazing headbands, bodacious muscle tear away and rock band shirts, your punk outfits, your bright colors, and winning attitudes and let’s party like its 1985!

This month’s meetup is 7:30pm at the El Cerrito Plaza BART station (6699 Fairmount Avenue). We roll at 8, so get there ON TIME. Our night will end at Lake Merritt, and we’ll have a couple of awesome stops along the way to get down and party. Route sheets will be available at the start.
