Boston Bike Party Presents: Decorative Gourds!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my hands on some fucking gourds and arrange them in a horn-shaped basket on the front of my bicycle. That shit is going to look so seasonal. I’m about to head up to the attic right now to find that wicker fucker, dust it off, and jam it with an insanely ornate assortment of shellacked vegetables. When I arrive at Bike Party, it’s gonna be like, BLAMMO! Check out my shellacked decorative vegetables, assholes. Guess what season it is—fucking fall. There’s a nip in the air and my bicycle is covered in mutant fucking squash.*

BBP Presents: BOSTON – Route, Fun, & Safety

Hey Bostonians, no one will be the new kid on the block after riding with 500 of the coolest people in this fine city!  We’re expecting a super-sized crowd for this ride so Summer Mode is still in effect. Use those red lights to make sure Boston Bike Party is a place where everyone knows your name, and then let the good times roll!

Friday, September 11, 2015
Meet at Copley Square at 7:30pm, ride at 8!

Check out our wicked cool route for this month’s party here!

What is Summer Mode?  Summer mode is a more laid back way to enjoy biking in the city on these hot summer nights.  We stop at red lights and we stay behind cars at red lights (aka: please no filtering) so that cars have a way out instead of getting trapped by our swarm.  Just like us animals, drivers don’t like being trapped… bad things happen when animals get trapped… so let’s just avoid it by offering car drivers a way out.
