Boston Bike Party Presents: Boston Red Socks! – Playlist

Bike Partiers, we need YOUR HELP putting together this month’s playlist for Boston Red Socks! (Check out Boston Red Socks LookBook Here)

This month we are looking for music that makes a fashion statement as a TEAM (Bike Party team Boston Red Socks, of course!); songs about moving your feet in style. Songs that make you want to move your feet.  Songs about the warmth of red and the first month spring. Songs of the awesomeness of wearing red socks in Boston together while riding bikes!

To add music to the submissions playlist:

  • Open and log into Spotify.
  • Click the “Play” button on the playlist above (or click this link). The playlist will start playing.
  • Click on the “+Follow” button at the top of the Spotify playlist to add the playlist to your sidebar.
  • Drag songs to the playlist!

Submissions open until the day of the ride!

Props to Aleta Wiley for kicking off the playlist with the perfect first submission (which we’ll just have to play on repeat for the entire ride if you don’t help us with music :P):

This week in our ongoing “Bike Party Winter Styles” series of blog posts, Aleta Wiley shares her secrets to staying warm AND windproof while riding her bike this winter:
