Boston Bike Party: Solar System!

Join Boston Bike Party as we take a “Magic School Bike” ride through our solar system on Friday, September 14! It’ll be the coolest party this half of the Milky Way.

As we orbit through our course, we’ll dance with the eight planets (don’t worry – we also sent an honorary invite to Pluto) that make up our floating puzzle and celebrate our star at the center of it all.

Inside our moving mini-planetarium, we’ll awe at Saturn’s rings, swirl with Jupiter’s spot, and bask in Venus’ glow!

Once we complete our lap around the sun, we’ll all keep rotating our hips at a stellar after party.

You don’t want to miss this celestial bliss – gravitate toward Copley Square at 7:00 pm on Friday, September 14. We’re rolling out at 7:30 pm!

January 19: First Boston Bike Party of 2018!

Mark your calendars: the first Boston Bike Party of 2018 will be the THIRD Friday of the month on January 19.  There might be record-breaking frostbite-inducing temps outside but we’ll be keeping things hot for the short ride and mega after party! Stay tuned for details.

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!

 

Bring out your 90s colors! (source)

You Have The Best Taste In Music

Bike Partiers,

Every month, we ask you to submit music to our ride playlists, and every month, you continue to impress us with your excellent music tastes every. single. month! Like that time we hosted a Riot Grrrl themed ride in March and you helped us create this excellent playlist of songs celebrating women everywhere. Or that time you had us laughing in tears when “If your dad doesn’t have a beard, you’ve got two mums” came on at last November’s “Novembeard vs. MOvember” ride. All we have to say is, THANK YOU for helping make Boston Bike Party a true party on wheels.

In fact, you’ve done such a good job of helping us curate playlists for every ride, I’ve found these playlists working their way into non-bike party aspects of my life.  Favorite music to get me pumped up in the morning bike commute as the weather gets chilly? “Down by the Boardwalk” and “Heatwave” playlists keep me warm. Feeling nostalgic about college and my alma mater? “Boston Bike Party Goes to College” features Beach Boys’ “Be True to Your School” and Dropkick Murphy’s “I’m Shipping Up To Boston!” I don’t even have to think about curating a playlist for parties anymore. I’ll just throw on any of our summer bike party playlists or the “Bike Prom” playlist if I’m feeling dancey-pantsy.

So below are all the playlists you’ve helped us put together for Boston Bike Party since May 2013, our very first Bike Party ever.  Be sure to check ’em out and “Follow” any ones you fancy.

Happy Friday!
