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!

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!

SFBP #37: At-last-a-rainy-San-Francisco-Winter in Wonderland (canceled)

It’s wet wet wet out there, y’all, and it’s gonna get wetter. Music bikes dislike moist electronics, costumes get rumpled, turn sheets dissolve, and a few weeks of street grime threaten to lubricate between our tires and the road. And as much as we love an adventure, we like to keep Bike Party fun for everyone. So snuggle up in your houses tonight and stay dry.

We’re staying in and organizing an extra ride for the weekend of February 22nd – stay tuned!
