  • Time travel is COLD, dress warm for below-freezing temperature.
  • JOIN US AT Hub Bicycle Co. for the after-party (1036 Cambridge St. Cambridge.) if you miss the start of the ride or aren’t prepared for tonight’s sub-freezing time travel and still want to party with us! We’ll have:
  • FREE PIZZA from All-Star Pizza thanks to Gogobot
  • REFRESHMENTS thanks to Harpoon Brewery, plus some non-alcoholic ones too!

12 Reasons Boston Bike Party In 2014 Was Awesome

Bike Partiers,

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.

Boston Bike Party Gives Thanks

Bike Partiers,

It’s hard for me to imagine a Boston before Bike Party (what was I even doing with my life on 2nd Fridays of every month if not dressing up as a Fung Wah bus to ride bikes with hundreds of people?!) , but just eighteen months ago, Boston Bike Party was nothing more than a neat idea I was discussing with two others over margaritas at Lone Star Taco Bar in Allston.  Eighteen Bike Parties later we have many people to be thankful for who have helped make Boston Bike Party possible:
