SFBP to be featured in SFSU Art Exhibit!

On Thursday, April 17, San Francisco State University Art Gallery will hold an exhibit, Sweet Ride: Biking Communities in the SF/Bay Area. We were asked to lead a ride (details below) to the exhibit and to contribute some of our costumes to be on display.

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!

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!
