East Bay Bike Party (2021 Reboot): Mask on, Ride on

May be an image of bicycle and text that says 'ക THAT'S HOW I ROLL'

WEEEEEEEEE’RE BACK
Last we left off was March 2020 with our Social Distance ride, before the Bay Area went under shelter in place / various lockdowns due to the covid-19 pandemic. As vaccinations roll out, viruses cases continue to drop, and folks have gotten more used to ‘living in these times’ – masked, distancing, and washing hands – we’re bringing bike party back for April 2021.

In case it’s not clear: the theme for April 9ths ride is mask appreciation. If it werent for masks we would not be able to host this ride. Decorate your mask, incorporate your mask into a costume, hiss at anyone not wearing a mask, etc.

WHEN & WHERE
FRIDAY, APRIL 9th (East Bay Bike Party always rides on the 2nd Friday of the month)
START: Macarthur BART station
Meetup 7:30 PM, rollout 8 pm
ENDS: At Lake Merritt

We’ll post the route the day before the ride

Distance: ~14 miles, very flat

BART: trains stop running well before the ride ends, so plan accordingly.

Regarding potholes and train tracks: as always, we have done our best to minimize risk to riders. Be aware of your surroundings, inflate your tires fully and use a bike light that lets you see the road. The Adeline overpass in west oakland has two holes that can pop your tires if you arent paying attention. There may or may not be cones the night of the ride marking these holes.


BIKE PARTY COVID RIDE RULES!
**Wear a MASK
**Keep Physical Distance as best as possible
**Do not come if you are sick, or if you are of a vulnerable population
**Be mindful of BART Schedule and plan accordingly


STANDARD BIKE PARTY RULES!
*Stop at Lights
*Stay to the Right
*Ride Straight
*Don’t Hate
*Pack your Trash
*Don’t get Smashed
Bike Party is a 100% volunteer led and self-supported ride. Bring what you need to keep yourself going for the night such as: Water, snacks, party favors, bike tools.When in doubt…. BIKE PARTY! And, wear a mask party.

East Bay Bike Party June: Your Local Pirate Quest

Hey there Bike Party. I’m Curtis your ride leader for this Fridays ride. What I have in mind is something I am calling Pirate Quest.
WHEN: Friday June 12, 2020, thoughout the evening
WHERE: Your local streets!
I’m asking all you bike pirates out there to put on your finest pirate ware and go out and ride your bike. No need to Bart to a starting place. Start from home and ride in search of other bike pirates who are out and about.
Snap a picture of the other bike pirates you run into throughout the evening and post them to this event page. The Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/698819857354193/ Feel free to comment on this WordPress post with your pics of the evening!
The one capturing the most pirates wins 1st prize (TBD).
A group photo only counts as one sighting, so individual pictures are the most value. If you get a picture of me, you get five bonus points.
I will be roaming around Oakland/Berkeley area visiting regular bike party stop sites, Yes I will have the green flag.
I hope to see you out there!

A NOTE ON BIKE PARTY AND THE CORONA VIRUS:
YES we are riding. BUT please all be aware of the preventitive health measures that will keep our community safe.
DO NOT:
Shake hands- find a less handsy way to say hell to all your bike party peeps
Share bottles, beer, food, joints, cigarettes, vape pens, etc with others
Keep enough of a distance from folks during the ride to not accidentally swap bodilly fluids, keep enough distance from folks at the party stops and dance floors too.

We know this all is unfortunate but if we all do our part things will be OK. We will update and monitor the situation re: Group gatherings accordingly as things indeed are changing fast.

OTHERWISE, STANDARD BIKE PARTY RULES APPLY!
Bring your lights, locks, layers. Plenty of snacks, water, and libations (For YOURSELF ONLY- DO NOT SHARE!)

Stay to the Right
Stop At LIghts
Ride Straight
Don’t Hate
Pack your Trash
