Ugly Sweaters: Lookbook

This month at Bike Party, it’s time to wear our hearts on our sleeves as we get cozy in our favorite freak-flying sweaters!

Hugged by clashing colors and delightfully dreadful designs, we will thread through the city as a blur of offbeat, toasty fashion.  Bizarre, hideous patterns will rule the night and stay right on top as our ride unravels into its afterparty, highlighted by an abundance of argyle and glimmers of glitter.  From whimsical wool to funky fleece, come warm our hearts with your tackiest textiles!

Keep reading for inspiration on how to knit together some bold styles!

Cats vs. Dogs – Lookbook

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!

… and here’s your LookBook!


It’s gonna rain cats and dogs this November!

You can also pimp your ride to rep your allegience…

Under the Sea: Lookbook

July 14th Boston Bike Party will make a big splash in East Boston!

Join us as we leave the mainland in a tidal wave of bikes, music, & dancing as we dive deep into the underwater world. We’ll leave behind a trail of bubbles, laughter, and contamination free party stops.

So come ride the riptide with us for a few nautical miles and resurface for epic dance parties on the shore. Be sure to inflate your floaties (and your bike tires) so you’re ready to submerge yourself in fun!

School may be out for the summer, but there will be schools of fish on bikes heading over to East Boston! (source)
