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.
Thanks all our prospectors, saloon girls, miners and just Bike Partiers for rolling out with us to boomtown! We had about 250 of our closest friends join us through the gold lined streets of San Francisco. What a blast! Here are a few of our favorite photos. Don’t forget to tag us in yours and use #sfbikeparty #sfbp #bikeparty on Twitter, IG, Flickr, or FB
Join us at our next Bike Party where we’ll be remembering SF’s own Robin Williams. Friday, September 5th, meet up 7:30PM, roll out 8PM. Location TBA

It’s that time again, Bike Partiers! We’re rolling deep through this boom town on Friday, August 1st, and we sure do hope you can join us! If you need help with your costume, then you’ve struck gold, we’ve got your lookbook right here! Whether you’re a prospector, cowboy, saloon girl or Gold Rush millionaire, you’ve got this!
Meet us in the parking lot at the corner of Front and Union streets at 7:30pm. We head west to find our fortunes at 8:00. Ding Ding!
Wow, Bike Partiers! If you weren’t with us on the 4th of July, you missed one of the most epic events we’ve had to date. For the first time EVER, we left San Francisco city limits to take you across the Golden Gate Bridge. It was beautiful, it was fun, it was FOGGY! But still, we bombed through one of our favorite tunnels (check out a video here. Thanks, Tracy Jacks!) and even caught the fireworks! If you missed it, you missed out! Thanks you to all the folks who came out, helped out and rocked out with us. You are what make Bike Party so special.
What fun! We’ll be at it again next month, so mark your calendars for our California Gold Rush ride on Friday, August1st. Meet us at the Exploratorium Pier at 7:30 PM. We head west in search of Gold at 8:00!
Since our next bike party is on the 4th of July, we’re going patriotic! Join us for an Americana themed event, and we’ll lead you to the perfect spot to catch the fireworks. Bring your American flags, your red white and blue, your sailors and pin ups or whatever else makes you think of Independence day. This is a special ride, with a surprise twist, so make sure to bring extra layers and bike locks. Gears, brakes and lights are also strongly encouraged for this ride. We can’t wait.
If you need some inspiration for your perfect BP look, we’ve got you covered in Red, White and Blue!
Meet up on July 4th at 7:30pm. We roll at 8:00! Don’t forget to bring extra layers to keep warm, bright lights (headlamps encouraged) and locks for your bike. This is a more technical ride with hills up and down. Gears and brakes are strongly encouraged for all riders.
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!
We can’t wait to see you all tonight! Download our route map and turn by turn so you can find your way across the universe. Don’t get lost in space! Meet us at The McKinley Statue in the Panhandle at 7:30pm. We roll to infinity and beyond at 8:00! Ding Ding!
