Well, we managed to #getunlucky afterall: due to tonight’s frigid weather, we are CANCELLING THE RIDE PORTION of BBP tonight BUT ARE STILL PARTYING at Boston Beer Works (112 Canal St. Boston) to break some moves & hearts! See you there!

Bike Partiers, we are stuck in Back Bay and it’s the year 1985! We have got to get back to the year 2015! The good news is, we’ll be able to harness all 1.21 GIGAWATTS of BIKE POWER destined to hit Copley Square at approximately 7:30pm on Friday, January 16th! If our calculations are correct, then when Boston Bike Party hits 8.8MPH, we’ll be able to get from BACK BAY TO THE FUTURE! Bike Partiers, you’re our only hope…SEE YOU THERE!!!!

Here’s your Lookbook:
We’re proud to say that 2014 was Boston Bike Party’s first complete calendar year, with a ride every month from January through December. That’s twelve months, twelve bike parties, involving everything from pirate flags, school spirit, robots, dinosaurs, spaceships, birthday cake, red socks, and GRRRL power! Not only did we have upwards of 400 riders come out for rides this year; 2014 brought new Bike Party experiences, playlists, graphics, Facebook profile photos, and countless new friendships.
Save The Date :January 16th, 2015!
Since January has five Fridays (woot!) we’re going to shake it up by bike partying on the THIRD Friday. This will give everyone more time to: Go skiing, make gingerbread houses, turn snow from white to yellow, or whatever else you crazy kids like to do in the winter. Just save the date… you won’t be disappointed.
