Boston Bike Party: Stranger Boston

This October, Bike Party is adventuring to new dimensions. We’ll visit the Upside-Down, open the Hellmouth, and bust some ghosts as we bravely pedal our bikes to outride the zombies, werewolves, and other Big Bads of the Strange Boston night. We’ll need some rogue FBI agents, vampire slayers, and telekinetic powers to ward off the smoke monsters, aliens, and demogorgons. Anyone have a compass? Magnetic fields never fail. There’s no question if you should stay or you should go now; join us in exploring a Stranger Boston . . .

Boston Bike Party Presents: Stars vs Stripes

In the course of human events, whenever it becomes necessary to solve a fashion debate as old as time, we turn to you, trusty bike partiers, for help: what’s the most fashionable pattern to represent one’s team, nation, or self in the month of July? Stars? those little specs in the night sky that represent dreams and galaxies far away? or Stripes? Those alternating bars of color that represent the solid, predictable, stability of color that keeps us grounded, A zebra’s unique survival asset?

Bring out your stars, stripes, or if you’re unsure, both!, and prove to us which pattern shines best!

Boston Bike Party Presents: DOUBLE RAINBOW

They say

At the end of a rainbow lies a pot of gold.
Somewhere over a rainbow, bluebirds fly
That people come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and sexuality
but sometimes, in June, something so beautiful, it’s hard to deny:

Oh…. My….God….it’s a full on complete double rainbow all the way across the sky!
