We’re going back to Wonderland, but it’s a different and darker world than yesterday! Ride with us as we visit the land of undead White Rabbits, ghost like Cheshire cats, and truly Mad Hatters. The land of Malice in Wonderland is filled with dark and creepy creatures, skeletons, ghosts and goblins, and all things that go bump in the night! Here are some ideas to get your costume gears turning.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with.  Ding Ding!

SFBP #45: Remembering Robin Williams LookBook

This month San Francisco Bike Party is celebrating the life and work of noted cycling enthusiast and Bay Area resident Robin Williams. His presence, grace and humor touched our lives, and left an indelible legacy. Now SFBP has chosen to honor this bike riding funny man with a Bike Party! Let’s send Mork home to Ork in true Bay Area fashion. Please come representing your favorite Robin Williams character or movie, from Jumanji to Patch Adams, from Happy Feet to Mrs. Doubtfire and beyond. Robin loved this city, and he loved bikes, what better way to celebrate his life than a ride in his honor? If you can’t remember his incredible body of work, here’s a look back with our LookBook.

SFBP #43 Americana Recap

Wow, Bike Partiers!  If you weren’t with us on the 4th of July, you missed one of the most epic events we’ve had to date.  For the first time EVER, we left San Francisco city limits to take you across the Golden Gate Bridge.  It was beautiful, it was fun, it was FOGGY! But still, we bombed through one of our favorite tunnels (check out a video here. Thanks, Tracy Jacks!) and even caught the fireworks!  If you missed it, you missed out! Thanks you to all the folks who came out, helped out and rocked out with us. You are what make Bike Party so special.

Since our next bike party is on the 4th of July, we’re going patriotic!  Join us for an Americana themed event, and we’ll lead you to the perfect spot to catch the fireworks. Bring your American flags, your red white and blue, your sailors and pin ups or whatever else makes you think of Independence day.  This is a special ride, with a surprise twist, so make sure to bring extra layers and bike locks.  Gears, brakes and lights are also strongly encouraged for this ride. We can’t wait.

If you need some inspiration for your perfect BP look, we’ve got you covered in Red, White and Blue!
