SFBP #65: Zoomania

SFBP’s next ride: July 1st ~ Start at Koret Children’s Quarter in Golden Gate Park (near the carousel) Route TBA

San Francisco: an urban jungle ruled by wild beasts. Some of us walk on two legs, some walk on four legs, others walk on six legs. Some of us fly, some hop, some saunter and some crawl or slither.  Here are a few images to help let your inner animal out.

Come roar and slither with us at our next bike party! April 6th at 7:30PM ~ Start at Koret Children’s Quarter in Golden Gate Park (near the carousel) Route TBA

[POSTPONED due to rain] SFBP #62: She-Roes LookBook

*We are postponing this ride due to rain. While we desperately need it, rain + Bike Party isn’t fun for anyone. We’ll be back in April to celebrate the She-roes with this route, so check back 4/1!*

March is Women’s History Month. A month where we celebrate the power, intelligence and colorful history of the She-roes in our world. Let’s recognize the achievements of women in all facets of life – science, community, government, literature, art, sports, medicine – and Bike Party while we do it! Here are a few women we admire or creative costumers rocking the RBG!

7:30PM meet up, 8PM roll out!

SFBP #61: Ziggy Stardust and the Ace of Spades Lookbook

Meet us on Friday, February 5th at the Panhandle basketball courts for a tribute to Lemmy Kilmister and David Bowie, two rock stars who gave us so much, and then have left this planet for another realm. Costumes, music and face paint strongly encouraged.

Meet at 7:30

Blast off at 8:00

Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do.


Look up here, I’m in heaven

I’ve got scars that can’t be seen

I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen

Everybody knows me now.

This way or no way

You know, I’ll be free

Just like that bluebird

Now ain’t that just like me.

~David Bowie

Lemmy (1)






have a fucking weekend

Fuck this ‘don’t speak ill of the dead’ shit!

People don’t become better when they are dead;

you just talk about them as if they are.

But it’s not true!

People are still assholes.  They are just dead assholes.

~Lemmy Kilmister

SFBP #45: Remembering Robin Williams LookBook

This month San Francisco Bike Party is celebrating the life and work of noted cycling enthusiast and Bay Area resident Robin Williams. His presence, grace and humor touched our lives, and left an indelible legacy. Now SFBP has chosen to honor this bike riding funny man with a Bike Party! Let’s send Mork home to Ork in true Bay Area fashion. Please come representing your favorite Robin Williams character or movie, from Jumanji to Patch Adams, from Happy Feet to Mrs. Doubtfire and beyond. Robin loved this city, and he loved bikes, what better way to celebrate his life than a ride in his honor? If you can’t remember his incredible body of work, here’s a look back with our LookBook.
