BBP: Cats vs Dogs

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!

RSVP and invite your friends here!

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!

* 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.
