San Francisco Bike Party (SFBP) and San Francisco Yellow Bike Project (SFYBP) are joining forces on Friday, December 7, 2012 to gather toys and bikes for children for the upcoming holiday season. The toys will be given to a local fire station at the end of the ride on Friday night. The bikes will be inspected and repaired by SFYBP before being distributed to kids via a school-based bike swap.
The two organizations will be collecting toys and bikes for one night only during the monthly SFBP ride. They are asking the public to please bring any new and unwrapped toys to any of the resting locations during the ride. The ride will gather at McCovey Cove around 7:30 pm. There will be two stops at South Park in SOMA and Pier 7 along the Embarcadero. Please check SFBP’s twitter (@sfbikeparty) for the rest area drop off times on Friday, December 7th. The ending location will be Showplace Triangle at the intersection of 16th and 8th streets at approximately 11pm.
People who ride with SFBP and bring a toy or bike parts will be given a spoke card. The organizations want to encourage all of the community, including those who cannot ride SFBP, to give toys and any used bikes or bike parts to this toy drive.
San Francisco Bike Party is on the first Friday of every month, and their mission is to build community through biking.
San Francisco Yellow Bike Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community bike shop that uses the bicycle to empower our community. The SFYBP’s mission is to get more people on more bikes in the streets of San Francisco.

What do hardly strictly bluegrass & SFBP have in common? Bicycles & banjos. They are two free events happening in SF that celebrate music. You’re in trouble if you have to go pee. If there’s music you don’t like, you can always go find other music you DO like. They both make people happy. And, finally, they are both happening on the same day in October.
Come ride with us after friday’s hardly strictly lineup comes to an end. we will meet at a place to be determined in golden gate park. stay tuned for updates and a route!
meet at glen park bart station overflow parking lot (across street from the bart station) at 7:30pm on friday, august 3!
and turn by turn sheet! print it. tear it. share it. or save paper and use your smartphone on the ride.

thanks to the over 400 people who joined us on a fantastic SF night. we partied out on the pier until who knows when and had a little bike party of our own going home.
here’s some fotos. we’ve got dapper gentleman and classy ladies. we’ve got large skulled skeletons riding bikes. we’ve got gorgeous sunsets and our very own tesla coil out on “toxic beach.” we’ve got repeat riders, can you tell which ones are in the slideshow below?
we heard the masses, and next month we will have a longer ride with three stops. ask and ye shall receive.
see y’all next friday!
London’s calling to the faraway towns,
Bike party’s declared, and we’re riding down.
London’s calling, and we’ve got a ride.
On roadies, on mixtes, on skates that glide.
The olympics are coming, bike party’s zooming in.
Engines stop running, traffic’s growing thin.
An oil-free era, but we have no fear,
Cause London is calling and we bike by the river.
