SFBP #67 Biking Man Lookbook

Did you know Burning Man had its humble but wild beginnings at San Francisco’s own Baker Beach? Did you also know that bikes play a huge part of life on the Playa? In honor of Burning Man taking place during Bike Party, and maybe because some of us wish we could be part of the festivities, we will revisit the birthplace of Burning Man on our bikes!

Light up your bikes, Radically Self-express and don’t be a Darkwad. Actively engage with this event that is a Gift from your Community. Participate as a volunteer, ride Responsibly, be Radically Self-Reliant, and Leave No Trace!

This theme is geared towards bikes and lights, so make sure to come lit up like a disco ball!



Meet us at the Panhandle basketball courts at 7:30 pm on Friday, September 2nd.  We roll into the ether at 8:00! Baker Beach will be one of the stops on our route though we’re not sure which one yet…stay tuned!

SFBP #66: White Wedding LookBook


What’s the one thing usually missing from all the weddings you’ll attend this summer? Bikes! It’s wedding season and we’re busting out the white lace, tulle, and ruffles for a Bike Party you won’t soon forget! Unlike Billy Idol’s classic, we’ll be bringing bikes to this wedding! Billy Idol rocked last year’s Outside Lands and this Bike Party will coincide with the first day of the festival.

We are working on a route that allows folks to attend both Bike Party and Outside Lands…more to come on that!

In the meantime, get yourself gussied up and take inspiration from some of our favorite wedding looks from Madonna to Princess Kate! You can take this theme in any direction…punk, goth, 80’s, traditional, Victorian, thrift store chic, zombie, etc… If you’re looking for inspiration, you’ve come to the right place!  Check out these bad ass brides, grooms and bikers.  See you on Friday, August 5th at 7:30pm.  We roll at 8:00.  Ding Ding!


Always be yourself, unless you can be Billy Idol. Then always be Billy Idol.

+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!!”

Friendly reminder that SF Bike Party is a volunteer run, community based event. We ask our participants to be radically self reliant and come prepared. This means that your bike should be in good working order, equipped with brakes, lights and fully inflated wheels. Extra tubes and bike tools are always a plus, as you never know when you might get a flat. While Bike Party aims to leave no rider behind, we are not always able to provide bicycle maintenance, supplies or tools in the event of a mechanical failure.

Starting location and route map to follow. Stay tuned!
