Three cyclists lost their lives in SF and Pleasanton within a few hours of each other due to serious car collisions these past couple days.
We will hold a community ride to pay our respects to our fallen SF community members, Heather Miller and Kate Slattery.
We will start at the statue at Baker and Fell, then ride to Golden Gate Park around 30th. Then we will head to SOMA and 7th and Howard. We plan to reach 7th and Howard around 8:00PM where there will be a small group of non-bikers waiting for the bikers.
Join if you can. Please leave your music bikes at home. Candles and art strongly encouraged.
Note: we are still holding our normal ride, Zoomania, on Friday 7/1. See you there.
SFBP’s next ride: July 1st ~ Start at Koret Children’s Quarter in Golden Gate Park (near the carousel) Route TBA
San Francisco: an urban jungle ruled by wild beasts. Some of us walk on two legs, some walk on four legs, others walk on six legs. Some of us fly, some hop, some saunter and some crawl or slither. Here are a few images to help let your inner animal out.

*We are postponing this ride due to rain. While we desperately need it, rain + Bike Party isn’t fun for anyone. We’ll be back in April to celebrate the She-roes with this route, so check back 4/1!*
March is Women’s History Month. A month where we celebrate the power, intelligence and colorful history of the She-roes in our world.

Here are a few women we admire or creative costumers rocking the RBG!

Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do.
Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now.
This way or no way
You know, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now ain’t that just like me.
Fuck this ‘don’t speak ill of the dead’ shit!
People don’t become better when they are dead;
you just talk about them as if they are.
But it’s not true!
People are still assholes. They are just dead assholes.

It’s that time again friends, when the leaves change and the air is crisp and you get to break out those cozy sweaters and oh…wait… We forgot where we were for a second. We live in San Francisco, so it’s still pretty much summer here. But hot or not, we can’t stop the (bike) wheels of time from turning. November’s Bike Party is “Falling Back” and bidding adieu to that lovely extra hour of sun. Whether you beard-it-up as Father Time, roll in a pile of fall leaves or get celestial as the sun or moon, put your best (clock) face forward and join us!
Don’t forget to set your bikes er…clocks back an hour!
If you can find enough fall leaves in SF to make a pile, roll in them!
Set your watch by your bike!
These probably can’t replace a bike helmet, but we’re sure you can make them work!
Minimalist wheel clock
Father time won’t stop for you, but Bike Party makes several stops, woohoo!
We can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Meet us at the Ferry Building on November 6th at 7:30pm. Despite the imminent time change, we’ll be rolling out at 8:00!
Aaaaaaarrrrggg! Bike Party has been boarded by pirates! This month we’re hailing the kings and queens of the ocean’s flotilla. Bring out your vests, peg legs, gold hoop earrings and parrots—this party is taking place on the high seas of our rolling hilly city! Pull down your white flags and raise up your skull and crossbones, we’re going rogue and dressing the parrrt.
Meet up at 7:30, roll out at 8pm.
Route TBD (patience, pirates, all maps to treasure will be revealed in due course).
And as a special bonus, A SECRET PRIZE of utmost value will be awarded to the pirate wearing the finest costume….so here are a few ideas for piratey gear:
