Boston Bike Party: Steampunk vs. Cyberpunk

The next Boston Bike Party is Friday, October 12th!

Hop aboard your high-wheelers and velo-mechs to show the streets of Boston which technofantasy future we must escape to: 1890 or 1980.

We are the intersection of technology and romance. We are the nightriders of the steam age and the cyber era. Slip on that leather, strap on the combat boots, harden up the mohawks, and don the monacles for a punk ride like no other!
Start: Copley Square

Our party zeppelins will guide the way blasting the neon dystopian tunes – add your suggestions here:

Roll with us to Wonderland and we’ll show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.  (JK not actually riding to Wonderland)

Boston Bike Party: Solar System!

Join Boston Bike Party as we take a “Magic School Bike” ride through our solar system on Friday, September 14! It’ll be the coolest party this half of the Milky Way.

As we orbit through our course, we’ll dance with the eight planets (don’t worry – we also sent an honorary invite to Pluto) that make up our floating puzzle and celebrate our star at the center of it all.

Inside our moving mini-planetarium, we’ll awe at Saturn’s rings, swirl with Jupiter’s spot, and bask in Venus’ glow!

Once we complete our lap around the sun, we’ll all keep rotating our hips at a stellar after party.

You don’t want to miss this celestial bliss – gravitate toward Copley Square at 7:00 pm on Friday, September 14. We’re rolling out at 7:30 pm!

Summer Blockbuster!

In a world, galaxy, or universe, far far away (or very close to home) where…

An African king must return home to save his nation.
A fearless warrior escapes a post-apocalypse despot in a high-speed dessert chase.
An terrestrial creature just wants to phone home.
A friendly clownfish strays too far from home.

Sometimes, all these summer blockbuster get together to ride bikes and dance their way through Boston!

Over the Rainbow!

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
And the dreams that you dream of, once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, blue bikes fly!

This month, Bike Party celebrates humans, bikes, witches, dogs, and music spanning every shape and color of the rainbow!

January 19: First Boston Bike Party of 2018!

Mark your calendars: the first Boston Bike Party of 2018 will be the THIRD Friday of the month on January 19.  There might be record-breaking frostbite-inducing temps outside but we’ll be keeping things hot for the short ride and mega after party! Stay tuned for details.

Ugly Sweaters: Lookbook

This month at Bike Party, it’s time to wear our hearts on our sleeves as we get cozy in our favorite freak-flying sweaters!

Hugged by clashing colors and delightfully dreadful designs, we will thread through the city as a blur of offbeat, toasty fashion.  Bizarre, hideous patterns will rule the night and stay right on top as our ride unravels into its afterparty, highlighted by an abundance of argyle and glimmers of glitter.  From whimsical wool to funky fleece, come warm our hearts with your tackiest textiles!

Keep reading for inspiration on how to knit together some bold styles!

Cats vs. Dogs – Lookbook

On Friday, November 10th, get ready to ride with the wolf pack as Bike Party follows the scent of catnip through the maze of Boston! On this purrrfect night, we’ll adopt the energy of our favorite pets with fetching costumes and plenty of cattitude!

When the eyes of the tiger start seeing spots and stripes, we’ll paws our Incredible Journey to unleash our party animals and shake our tails to the sounds of Def Leopard, Snoop Dogg, the Cheetah Girls, & Bloodhound Gang.

Before we say fur-well, we’ll raise the ruff with a mastiff after party at Flat Top Johnny’s (1 Kendall Sq.)!!!

Will Garfield or Snoopy bring the most laughs? Will Scooby Doo or the Pink Panther solve the mystery? Will Cat Woman or Underdog save the day? Scratch away your worries, and join this adorable litter to find out!

… and here’s your LookBook!
