Well folks, it looks like we are being rained out once again. With water currently falling from the sky and forecasts calling for high chances of both rain and heavy winds throughout the evening, we are going to have to cancel today’s Bike Party. We hope that you all stay safe, warm and dry this weekend. We look forward to seeing you next month, hopefully with clear skies!

We’re Hardly in High School anymore, but that doesn’t Strictly matter. Let’s take a step back in time and celebrate HARDLY STRICTLY HOMECOMING!
Break out your finest duds, your vintage prom dresses, your football helmets, your old cheerleading outfits. Let’s recreate one of the biggest nights of our teenage years (except with less drama over Mickey flirting with Hailey when he’s totally your date). Dress up, get down, let’s Bike Paaaaarty!
Volunteers who take a turn will be entered in a super special raffle. Find us at the green flag to sign up! And don’t forget to tag us in your photos, use #sfbikeparty or #sfbike
Bike Party asks all bicyclist to follow the How We Ride to promote a positive community during our rides.

Huge thank you to all the folks who blasted off to the stars with us at our last BIKE PARTY! Don’t forget to tag #sfbikeparty in your photos and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Flickr (i.e. ALL OF THE PLACES!) Here are a few shots from our Intergalactic Odyssey:
We want to send out a big thank you to our volunteers and everyone who came out, in costume or otherwise, for our intergalactic odyssey. We had such a great time partying with you! We can’t keep bike party rolling without your help, so please consider volunteering with us on one of our upcoming rides, the first Friday of every month! You might even win a cool prize for helping out. We have some surprises up our sleeves for our next ride, which just so happens to fall on the 4th of July! We hope you can join us to celebrate Americana for Independence Day! Stay tuned for more details. Ding Ding!
You grab a costume
I’ll grab a bike
this is the end of the rest of your life!
This bike party is a Haunted House!
(Lyrics adapted from Sharon Needles’ hit single This Club is a Haunted House)
Just in case Halloween isn’t enough inspiration for you, we’ve got some ideas for how you can help make our haunted bike ride even more terrifying than All Hallows Eve. Join us on November 1st for a ‘Haunted House Hangover’ Bike Party. Halloween is more fun on 2 wheels! Bring your Jason mask, it’s fright night!
Meet us this Friday, November 1st, at the Dolores Park Playground at 7:30pm. We take fear to the streets at 8:00! We have some very special guests joining us at the final party stop at the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park, so make sure to stick around for the show. Lady Napalm will be spinning fire just for Bike Party! You can check her out here. Don’t miss it! We can’t wait to scare your pants off!
We all know our favorite toys now that we are grown-ups are our bikes, but when were kids we had lots more time to play. This month, we’re bringing a bit of whimsy to the party with our theme. Reach back into the archives and pull out your G.I. Joes, your pogs, your rubber duckies and your baseball gloves, it’s time to play with your favorite childhood toys. Whether you liked princesses or pogo sticks, we all remember that one thing we thought we’d never be able to live without. Times have changed, but it’s never too late to embrace your inner child. Here are some of our favorites to get your gears turning. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
We have some tricks up our sleeve this month so make sure you get there on time (or even early) and stay until the end if you can. Location is still TBD but it will definitely be meeting in the NOPA/Alamo Square area. As always, we can’t keep bike party rolling without your help. Please consider being a turn guide to keep us on the right track. Look for our volunteer coordinator at the meet up, she’ll be in full costume, so you won’t be able to miss her! Meet us at 7:30. We roll at 8:00! Ding Ding!
