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.

SFBP #43: Americana LookBook

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!
