Have a sweet bike party costume you’ve been looking for an excuse to wear? Reuse! Have some soda cans that could look great on a bike wheel? Or cardboard boxes that need to be turned into bike-riding robots? Re-CYCLE!

Boston Bike Party: Revolutionaries

Have you heard the news going around? This month’s Bike Party will be revolutionary!

With spoke cards orbiting our hubs, we will pedal our loving bicycles deep into the movies, books, songs, and movements where change has been – or is being – made!

As we spin through the streets, we will celebrate the spirit of resistance by sporting Princess Leia’s buns and Katniss’s braid, by channeling the power of organizing youth with robes and wands from Hogwarts, and by singing along with Beyonce’s demands for justice while rocking bold leotards.

Whether it’s real or fiction (or a planetary / wheel pun…), come represent a revolution close to your heart!

* Friday, March 10, 2017
* Meet at Copley at 7pm; roll out at 7:30

*Facebook Event: RSVP & invite your friends!
* Ride Playlist Submissions: coming soon!
* Route: TBA
* After Party: TBA
* Lookbook: coming soon!
* Artwork by Sarah Nichols

** Important Note: Cultures are not costumes. If you wish to honor those of a real-life movement in which you are not centered, please be conscientious of how you do so and reflect before choosing what you wear/display. (Consider reading this article for a basic introduction to cultural appropriation: http://everydayfeminism.com/2015/06/cultural-appropriation-wrong/)

With the current heaviness of the world, this is intended to be a fun night to celebrate, refresh, and unite our community while still recognizing the serious challenges that loom & the rebellious energy that is needed. While Boston Bike Party is a fun event, we encourage you to engage in concrete action & investment to support the current revolutions demanding human rights.

Cabin Fever – Lookbook

Turn your Cabin Fever into Dance Fever at Bike Party this month!

If winter has you feeling cooped up, join us for a toasty adventure as we follow the aroma of hot cocoa through the city bustle to our secret oasis of warmth, love, and bike friends. Flannels and down vests will be all the rage as the night stars twinkle in our bike reflectors.

You can leave the trail mix at home: there will be mountains of FREE FOOD to share over campfire stories at our extra epic after party! Shake out your restlessness on the dance floor as special guest DJ Camilo cranks up the thermostat with fiery beats that will keep your hiking boots stompin’.
