Start down the magical Bike Party road by meeting at El Cerrito Del Norte BART @ 7:30pm, rolling at 8pm. Do you want to be Mr. Mint or Giggly Gumdrop? Choose your sweet costume and then dance your way along the rainbow path to the Peppermint Forest and Princess Frostine’s Ice Palace. Let your imagination soar as you make your way to King Kandy’s Castle!

Riders will advance through the peppermint stick forest by following the Bike Party rules:
1. Stay Right
2. Stop at Lights
3. Ride Straight
4. Don’t Hate
5. Pack Your Trash
6. Don’t Get Smashed

Not following the rules will get you stuck in Lord Licorices’ Lagoon, losing a turn.

Stopping at red lights and making our party stops cleaner than when we arrived will get double colored squares.

EBBP presents… The Rhythm Ride, April 2014

Image

At night when you turn off all the lights
There’s no place that you can hide
No, no the rhythm is gonna get you

In bed throw the covers on your head
You pretend like you are dead
But I know it, the rhythm is gonna get you

Rhythm is gonna get you
Bike Party is gonna get you
Rhythm is gonna get you
Bike Party is gonna get you tonight

You can’t fight it, every 2nd Fri-day
No matter what you say
You know it, the rhythm is gonna get you

No clue of what’s happening to you
And before this night is through
Ooh, baby, Bike Party’s gonna get you

Calling out to EBBP participants: We want you to BRING THE RHYTHM this month. Drums, plastic containers, tambourines, triangles, whatever it takes! Might be a good time for MORE COWBELL!
