Let’s Be Twinsies – Lookbook

Bike Partiers,

Get ready to double the pleasure & double the fun! Boston Bike Party turns two this month so find a buddy, or 2 or 3 or 4, and declare, “Let’s Be Twinsies!”

With our doppelgangers by our side, we’ll experience deja vu with a Bike Party highlights tour of Boston. Maybe we’ll find Waldo and replicate some sheep. Perhaps we’ll spot celebrity duos while avoiding an attack of the clones. Either way, we’re sure to be like peas in a pod rolling down the double-laned roads of Boston. Get ready for the Terrific Twos!
