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.
