… oh, its going to be lovely to see strange lands at home… oh.. and games, so come right in… step this way, kind pedaler.. we have many of you in here and we would many games to play … perhaps.. kind sir would enjoy a game of ulockshoes? ahh.. and sir.. yes.. and  ma’am and ma’am and sir,  … yes.. we have a couple discs…but at night… they twist with brilliant light.. oh what fun… . oh.. we have many fun things around us, with us, in you, and we are a fanciful bunch of merrimakers and smile creators, so please.. yes.. right this way, that’s the dance tent and its always booming … shaking. pulsing, writhing and twisting about … the East Bay Bike Party tent is always off the hook!

We are all jugglers of wonderful tales of East Bay love so let’s show the rest of the community what a Twisted Carvinal of bikes looks like! All you dwellers of the thirteenth, the darkers, the shadowy smile makers, freddies, jugglers, clowns, freaks, geeks, fortune tellers, tight ropers, gamers, players, fun havers, dancers, spinners, … the spirited and curious seekers we want you……to ..

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

REMEMBER 3 Ls: LOCKS, LIGHTS, LAYERS

LOCK YOUR BIKES UP.  Bikes get stolen.

LIGHTS – Two lights every day keeps you safe and at the very least, the cops away.

LAYERS – This is the EAST BAY and our weather is crazy, like us.

-INVITE WISELY: If you’re inviting friends, make sure that they think that safety is sexy & know the Bike Party code.

-PICK UP YOUR TRASH: This one’s simple – if you brought it in or ate/drank it, you pack out the can/wrapper/trash with you.

-VOLUNTEER: Volunteer to take a corner and lead the Bike Party through a turn. Make new friends and help make Bike Party awesome.

-COME PREPARED: This is an unsupported ride, so bring whatever you’d bring if you went on a long solo ride. A patch kit, tools, lights, snacks & layers are a good start.

-KNOW THE CODE: If you come out this Friday, this is what the people around you will expect. And you’ll make more friends if you ride safely. Making friends and meeting new people is what this ride is about, after all:
Stay Right
Stop At Lights
Ride Straight
Don’t Hate
Pack Your Trash
Don’t Get Smashed

As always, East Bay Bike Party is the second Friday of every month, meet at 7:30, roll at 8pm. That means this months Bike Party will be on Friday the 13th! Meet at Coliseum BART station. ending near Union Point Park in Oakland.

See you Friday! BIKE PARRRTTYYYY!!!

    Anyone know how long the ride was last night distance wise?

  2. sand says:

    where’s a map? I would love to join the ride, but no way am I riding all the way to east oakland during rush hour by myself, and BART is obviously not an option

  3. Grapes says:

    Are there a lot of hills on this ride?

  4. psychanaut says:

    How have have previous rides from or around Coliseum gone? I’m a little hesitant to join since this is in the heart of some of the most dangerous areas in the whole Bay.
