With 500-700 people attending our 2nd ride, we showed the city our bicycle love! Our winner for the Bike Love photo contest was Caitlin Donohue. This photo just exudes hotness!
We want to give a special thanks to all the people who volunteered. Your help was greatly appreciated, especially the leaders directing people at various turns! In the upcoming weeks, we will be holding test rides to plan our next route! Sign up on our volunteer list if you are interested in participating.
While our route was only 9 miles, the Bike Party was a two and half hour long affair. (You can check our ride stats here). I heard many riders say that this ride was a little difficult because of the hills but everyone still enjoyed the ride!
We also spent about half of our Bike Party at the regroups! The non riding party was made especially fun because we had an impromptu performance by Odd Owl at Dolores Park. Our regroups are a great place to dance, make friends, and just take a breather!
Unfortunately, we have a safety reminder for our regroup partiers. Several riders got their bicycles stolen at Garfield Park. If you walk away from your bike, be sure to lock it up! We don’t want anyone else to lose a bicycle.
If you have any photos to share, be sure to add them to our flickr group!
