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!

STARTING AT FRANKLIN SQUARE IN THE SOUTH END
Boston Bike Partiers grew up all over the world, so this month we’re celebrating your Hometown Pride!
Dig up your old high school chess champion t-shirt; show your support for your childhood little league team, or bring something from your country to display with pride! We’ll be celebrating our diverse origins but riding together as one open community: Boston Bike Party!

MEET AT UNION SQUARE IN ALLSTON
This summer, Boston Bike Party is changing things up!
Gather your favorite road trip playlists, dig out your maps, and pack some snacks ’cause we’re bringing the love to five new starting locations this summer! That’s right: we’re taking a vacation from Copley and beginning our ride in different spots this May, June, July, August and September.
Our tour stops this summer will be: May 12: Jamaica Plain June 9: Allston July 14: East Boston Aug 11: Dorchester Sept 8: Cambridge/Somerville
As always, we will be sharing all the details as they are planned. Specific meet up spots will be announced a few weeks before each ride!
So please follow us on Facebook & Twitter to stay up-to-date on all important ride details, and check this website for slightly slower announcements.
This month we’re celebrating our lovely earth and invite you and your bike to reduce, reuse and re-CYCLE! Spending too much time on the couch rather than coming out to bike party? Reduce! 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 loves creative, thematic costumes, but also encourages participants to be conscientious of the potential for cultural appropriation and to reflect before choosing what you wear or display. ***
With that said, here’s your Lookbook to get the gears revolvin’ . . .
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
** 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.
