SFBP to be featured in SFSU Art Exhibit!

On Thursday, April 17, San Francisco State University Art Gallery will hold an exhibit, Sweet Ride: Biking Communities in the SF/Bay Area. We were asked to lead a ride (details below) to the exhibit and to contribute some of our costumes to be on display.


The SFBP ride to the reception is going to roll from Dolores Park. We’ll gather at 19th & Dolores at 5pm for a 5:30 roll out. Map to come soon and we’ll post it here.

We look forward to seeing you next Thursday at this mashup of art and bikes! BIKEPARTY!

SFBP #39: Marching Lights

we are teaming up with the SFBC (and mother nature–weather looks good!) for this friday’s SFBP!

This month we are Marching with Light! March marks the one year anniversary of the Bay Bridge Lights exhibition, and to celebrate we are lighting up the night. We want to see you go big, go bright, go loud! Rinse the playa dust off your El wire, buy fresh batteries for your blinkies and flashies, and challenge the dark night on your glowing two-wheeled machines. We want this to be the brightest, lightest Bike Party yet! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Friday, March 7: Meet at Cupid’s Span on the Embarcardero at 7:30, roll out at 8pm. Route Map coming after our final test ride!

route map for triple party SFBP #33

ok, don’t forget your costumes for the contest tonight at ride sfo. i mean who doesn’t want to ride as their favorite childhood toy throughout san francisco?

we were reminded, once again, why we do test rides the week of bike party. we might have had to literally run into a large set of barricades. who wants that to happen?

map below, turn by turns to come as soon as we can format them.

see y’all tonight at the statue in the panhandle near baker street. get there early to check out our live music!
