SFBP #25 Terrible Twos Recap

Happy Birthday, y’all! Can you believe we just turned two? The last 2 years riding with you have been so awesome, and we are happy to report that over the holidays our Facebook fan page exceeded 4000 likes! Thank you for all the love and support over the past 2 years. From Pier 7 to Sutro Tower, we are blessed to ride this great city with you! And 2013 is already shinning bright! We can’t wait to keep rocking and rolling all year!

There were diapers, pacifiers and pyjamas galore at Civic Center on the first Friday of January for our Terrible Twos Birthday ride. It’s always great to see so many of you embracing the theme! If you have theme ideas, make sure to share them with us in the comments or via Facebook and Twitter. About 270 of us rolled out up Polk street towards Pacific Heights for the first leg of our Terrible Twos ride. We love to showcase the awesome route from downtown all the way to the Fort Mason, how great is it to avoid all the major hills?!  When we arrived at our first party stop, the Palace of Fine Arts, we were all surprised by a crew of fire dancers who brought their gear with them by bike! Thanks, guys! It’s still so inspiring to see the ways that you all choose to give back to bike party. Keep it coming, we love it!! And don’t you just love the Palace of Fine Arts? The stars were bright, the weather was perfect and the music was booming. Who could ask for more?

The Palace of Fine Arts was aglow with blinkies.  That's @bikepretty for this awesome shot!

We could have stayed all night, but there was even more to see. Since we love hills in SF, our second leg took us rolling up and down through the Marina, Pacific Heights, the Western Addition and Alamo Square before we made our way to Alta Plaza Park. Arguably one of the best bike-able views of the city, our birthday present was a perfectly clear sky and a stunning vista. I’m pretty sure the view from the jungle gym was spectacular. What did you think?

After playing on the swings, admiring the view and getting our dance on at Alta Plaza, we headed down the hill and up again towards Golden Gate Park for one final party stop at the Koret Children’s Quarter Playground. Thanks to all the volunteers to stepped up and took turns when we fell short on the last leg (and to all the other volunteers as well!) We honestly can’t keep bike party rolling without your help.  We need volunteers at every turn to guide bike partiers in the right direction. Golden Gate Park was a great place to party, as always, and we were pleased to see so many people dancing and enjoying the fire show.  We hope you had an awesome time! We can’t wait to see you next month for our February ride I ♡ Bike Party on Friday, February 1st.  It’s National Wear Red Day, so please wear red and show your BP love. We’ll be hitting up some iconic SF spots and painting the town red! Meet us at Fort Mason Green at 7:30.  We roll at 8:00!
