Poll – Rain Check?

UPDATE: The ride is postponed to next Thursday, 8/22.  Now there’s more time to invite your friends!

Original Post:

There’s a chance of rain and some colder weather tonight, but the Boston weather is fickle so we’re hoping for the best.  We want to know if you (bike partiers) would like to postpone the ride for a later date, or chance it and slog through the weather.  We’re all bundled up and ready for either option, we just want your input!

There’s a poll on Facebook setup here, so give us your vote!

Stay tuned.  We will post the final decision on Facebook and Twitter once it’s made.

Our first themed bike ride: DOWN BY THE BOARDWALK

It’s summer, its hot outside, but when the sun goes down the BOARDWALK is the place to be and be seen. Enjoy beautiful summer night on the boardwalk with us.

Come dressed in your favorite summer night boardwalk attire! Maybe its classy Jackie-O sunglasses in your hair, Maybe is a beach towel around your waist, Maybe your inspiration comes from the Jersey Shore… Tan-lines and beach wear welcome!

This ride will be on Tuesday, August 13th.  As before, we will be meeting at 7:30pm in Dewey Square in front of South Station.  We roll out at 8pm, but we’ve got a few quick announcements before hand, and that gives you time to meet some of your fellow bike partiers before the ride!

We’ve also got new tunes this time. You can add your favorite party music to our playlist on Spotify.

Just a reminder, everybody stay safe!  We’d like to promote biking in Boston, not make everybody hate cyclists.  With that goal, keep some things in mind:

  • Bring bike lights! Blinkies, glow sticks, and disco balls welcome!
  • Keep to the right lane and off of sidewalks
  • Never ride against traffic
  • Stop at red lights
  • Ride straight and predictably
  • Ride smart. Don’t ride inebriated or unsafely.
  • Remind others to be safe. Help remind others who aren’t following the rules.
  • Stick together! It isn’t a race to the end, it’s a social ride together. If the group is held back, wait. If you’re falling back (which is hard) catch up!
  • You are each responsible for your behavior! All participants ride at their own risk.

To keep up to date, follow the event on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.  We will be posting updates on Twitter before and during the ride so people can follow our progress and join us later if they are a bit late.  If you’ve got anything to share you can post to the Facebook event page, tell us on Twitter @BostonBikeParty or with #BostonBikeParty!

As always, ride safe and ride often!
