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.

Star signs, street signs, signs of the times, sign language, sign us up!
This month’s Bike Party is going to be all about signs – and however you want to interpret them. Dress as your fabulous Leo self, pair up for a Gemini costume, or get creative with some (legally scavenged) street signs. Whatever you decide, the question on everyone’s mind this bike party will be “What’s your sign?” If you need some help coming up with the perfect signage, never fear, the lookbook is here!
Whatever your sign, we sure hope you’ll sign up for Bike Party on Friday, May 2nd! Meet us at Civic Center at 7:30pm. We roll at 8:00!
Hey Bike Partiers! Happy New Year! Are you excited for the very first SFBP of 2014? Well, we’re going three for three! Join us January 3rd for our 3rd birthday!
For 3 years now, we’ve powered through the streets of San Francisco with your help, pulling music bikes and dancing hard to celebrate the pedal-powered revolution. Join us for our biggest birthday yet, as we trace our inaugural SFBP route and celebrate life on two wheels (or one, or three, or more, whatever fits your fancy). Wear your best and brightest birthday gear, because it’s our party and we’ll ride if we want to! We are so thrilled to be turning 3 and can’t wait to celebrate with you! Ding Ding!
Meet us on Friday, January 3rd, at Civic Center at 7:30pm. We roll at 8:00! We wouldn’t be celebrating our third birthday if you didn’t keep coming back each month, bringing friends and music and so much fun to our party every time, so thank you, thank you, thank you! The best present you can give us this year is your company, so dust off your dancing shoes and let’s make it great!
RAIN UPDATE: Hi Bike Partiers! The weather is looking frightful for our trip down the rabbit hole on Friday. For the sake of safety (SAFETY FIRST) we will let you know if we have to raincheck our December BP. Look out for an update on this space by 5:00pm on Friday. But don’t worry folks, you can still donate your toy to any fire station. Keep your eyes peeled and your fingers crossed for a Winter miracle and clear skies!
Don’t be late for high tea by the fire! It’s winter in wonderland, and the red queen is after your head. We are going down the rabbit hole, and we are bringing our bikes! Pyschedlic snowflakes, mad santa hats and cozy Cheshire cats are all welcome, it is Bike Party, after all! Here are some ideas to get your costume gears turning. We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Ding Ding!
We hope we’ve inspired you to finish your costume and come out with us on Friday, December 6th. Meet us at 7:30 at Potrero del Sol Park. We roll at 8:00!
And in the spirit of the holidays, we’ll once again be hosting a toy drive! Bring new, unwrapped stuffed animals, whoopie cushions, legos and hot wheels, and we’ll drop them off at a fire station at the end of the party. Please bring a toy and help us warm some hearts this season.
