Boston Bike Party: Stranger Boston

This October, Bike Party is adventuring to new dimensions. We’ll visit the Upside-Down, open the Hellmouth, and bust some ghosts as we bravely pedal our bikes to outride the zombies, werewolves, and other Big Bads of the Strange Boston night. We’ll need some rogue FBI agents, vampire slayers, and telekinetic powers to ward off the smoke monsters, aliens, and demogorgons. Anyone have a compass? Magnetic fields never fail. There’s no question if you should stay or you should go now; join us in exploring a Stranger Boston . . .

Boston Bike Party Presents: Stars vs Stripes

In the course of human events, whenever it becomes necessary to solve a fashion debate as old as time, we turn to you, trusty bike partiers, for help: what’s the most fashionable pattern to represent one’s team, nation, or self in the month of July? Stars? those little specs in the night sky that represent dreams and galaxies far away? or Stripes? Those alternating bars of color that represent the solid, predictable, stability of color that keeps us grounded, A zebra’s unique survival asset?

Bring out your stars, stripes, or if you’re unsure, both!, and prove to us which pattern shines best!

Boston Bike Party Presents: DOUBLE RAINBOW

They say

At the end of a rainbow lies a pot of gold.
Somewhere over a rainbow, bluebirds fly
That people come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and sexuality
but sometimes, in June, something so beautiful, it’s hard to deny:

Oh…. My….God….it’s a full on complete double rainbow all the way across the sky!

BBP Presents: Science!

Get ready for a night that blends the ultimate chemistry of bikes, music, and fun! We’ve calculated the formula for a stellar ride and we’re hypothesizing that you won’t need a microscope to see how much awesomeness will go down at the best party in this solar system!

Experiment with funky bow ties at your local thrift shop and toss on some safety goggles, too! Search all the rows of the Periodic Table for an element you can emulate! Dig through your wardrobe to unearth boots and cargo shorts for a field expedition (bonus points for dinosaur-themed socks). Discover a way to attach your fourth grade science fair volcano to a bike! Curl your hair to match Ms. Frizzle and invite some friends aboard our Magic School Bus. Predict that you’ll observe infinite galaxy-print leggings, and be sure to bring lights to shine bright like the stars!

This party will be off the Richter Scale so don’t get stuck in the computer lab: gravitate toward Copley around 7 pm. Our ride will be set in motion at 7:30 and, if Newton is correct, we’ll be rolling all night long!
