SFBP #85 – Rain Route, formerly: EPIC Bridge & Tunnel Bike Party

For some reason the first Friday of each month seems to make a great time to summon in much needed rain to our region. As you are surely aware, SF Bike Party has historically canceled with rain. In fact, the threat of rain of canceled our EPIC Bridge & Tunnel route when we tried it a few months ago. Well, no more we say, we have decided to try something new this month—we introduce to you, a rain route.

Since the forecast for rain on Friday March 2nd is staying strong we will be riding a new route designed with rain in mind. We are keeping it simple this time around, a short ride (7mi) with one covered party stop.


We’ll meet up under the awnings at the Ferry Building at 7:30pm, throw a party stop underneath Interstate 280 in Mission Bay, and finish underneath the Bay Bridge. It’s flat, the party stops are covered, and we stick to bike routes where possible. We feel these measures give SFBP the opportunity to keep our riders safe while at the same time get out and ride on the first Friday of the month.

So what do you say? Want to join us?

SFBP #80: Illuminate

As the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love winds down San Francisco Bike Party would like to keep the party going into the night. We’ll be meeting just after Hardly Strictly Bluegrass ends for the night on Friday October 6th at the Conservatory of Flowers and taking you on a magical journey through some of San Francisco’s most beautiful sights.

This month we partnered with Illuminate, the non-profit organization responsible for some of the Bay Area’s coolest public art:

This route will showcase their installation at the Conservatory of Flowers and ends with an up close view of the Bay Bridge lights.

The route has about 300′ of elevation gain and some dark roads through the Presidio. So bring your lights and layers and prepare to illuminate the night with light and love in the way that only Bike Party can. Here are a few examples of illuminated bike rides:

Bikes all lit up

vacant look + ill fitting helmet are made up for by bright lights

Meet up at 7:30pm, roll out at 8pm! And don’t forget the pillars of SF Bike Party, HOW WE RIDE:

– Stay in the right lane
– Stop at red lights
– Leave no trace
– Ride predictably and in control
– Roll past conflict
– Ride prepared
– When in doubt, “bike party!!”

SFBP #73: Alt SFBP


The resistance is not some distant point in the future, it is happening now and is led by Teen Vogue, Merriam-Webster Dictionary and a bunch of rogue National Park employees.

SFBP knows the resistance isn’t futile, and it WILL be led by bicycle.

Come join us as we round up fellow resistance members along the streets of San Francisco, home of the West Coast Resistance League. We ride our bikes while continuing to fight for justice for everyone!

We meet at 7:30 at AT&T Park on March 3rd. See you soon!

UPDATE: Route here >>>>>>
