According to ancient Bike Party legend, the 12 great Olympians gathered every month atop Mount Olympus to ride bicycles and drink nectar while discussing and deciding the fate of mere mortals. This month, the ancient Bike Party Olympians reunite!
We suspected Aleta was awesome when she showed up to our Novembeard VS. Movember ride with 100 cupcakes and fed 100 bike partiers with happiness baked to perfection. Our suspicion was confirmed when she kept coming on bike party rides even as temperatures dipped well below freezing! This week in our ongoing “Bike Party Winter Styles” series of blog posts, Aleta Wiley shares her secrets to staying warm AND windproof while riding her bike this winter:
Dear Bike Partiers,
You continue to impress us by showing up to our rides even in the winter! How do you keep riding even when the temperature gets below freezing, we wondered! So we figured we’d ask some of you to solve this mystery.
Today we catch up with Bike Partier Amy Leung, who helps Bike Party take fantastic photos on rides (photos by Bo Daley).
Boston Bike Partier Harris Allen just posted this fantastic video recap of this year’s Boston Halloween Bike Ride, where we collaborated with the HBR team for two start locations and one EPIC Bike Party collision. Check it out:
Here are some of our favorite snapshots from the night (these and many more fantastic shots on the Facebook photo album!):
‘Tis the season for a festive bike party! Grab that disco ball, string those colorful tree lights on your bike, and wear something bright and flashy because this month’s ride is a holiday SPARKLE MOTION bike party! (light-up, shiny, or holiday costumes highly encouraged!)
Welcome, Boston Bike Party Class of 2013!
Did you know there are 58 colleges and universities in Boston alone? This month, join us and ride bikes with Boston’s largest, most fun group bike ride in back-to-school style!
UPDATE: The ride is postponed to next Thursday, 8/22. Now there’s more time to invite your friends!
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!
Stay tuned. We will post the final decision on Facebook and Twitter once it’s made.
UPDATE! The ride has been postponed until next Thursday, 8/22. Now there is more time to invite your friends!
UPDATE! There’s a poll whether to postpone the ride until the 22nd. Stay tuned on Facebook and Twitter!
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!
This month we are going to check out some great biking places in JP, and get a bit of nature in along the Emerald Necklace while we’re at it. The ride will finish in Allston where we can grab drinks and a bite to eat.
Like always, we’ll meet on the second Tuesday (July 9th) at 7:30pm in Dewey Square, near South Station. We ride off at 8pm. You can check out the route map on Ride With GPS. We’ll have the music trailer towed by Jon Ramos blasting out some tunes for the ride. You can add your own music to the playlist on Spotify – bike dancing encouraged!
The best place to keep up with the montly Boston Bike Party is on Facebook!
