November East Bay Bike Party: TWINS RIDE – Friday, November 11th @ 7:30pm

Get ready to see double in November, as the next East Bay Bike Party is a TWINS RIDE!!

Eleven is just a one standing next to its twin, so how could we not go for this theme on 11/11/11! Do you have what it takes to be a twin? Of course you do! Remember: Twinners never quit and quitters never twin!

What kind of twin will you be? Identical twins, like Mary-Kate & Ashley, Patty & Selma or Tegan & Sara? Will you go fraternal as Zan & Jayna or Schwarzenneger & DeVito? Perhaps you’ll head in an “evil twin” direction and come as the two Kirks, Black Swan & White Swan or even Bender & Flexo. Heck, if you’re from Minnesota you might come as one of the Twins. Or even Twins twins!

Want some non-twin ideas? How about a robot or computer theme to celebrate the binary vibe of 11:11:11. Maybe take the ride “to eleven” and come as Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap or another spandex-wearing, spiky-haired rocker. Got a different idea? Go for it! Creativity and individuality are always encouraged.

October’s ride clocked in at over 750 people! The reason hundreds of new riders have joined Bike Party is because of the overall vibe of the ride. To keep that spirit alive, we need your help. We’re asking you to keep these guidelines in mind and even spread the word (and the love) to your fellow Partiers on ride nights:

  • Stay Right
  • Stop At Lights
  • Ride Straight
  • Don’t Hate
  • Pack Your Trash
  • Don’t Get Smashed

Follow these, and we can keep the ride fun, safe and drama-free.

This month’s ride will start at MacArthur BART (7:30 gathering, 8pm departure) and head north to take us on a leisurely tour through Berkeley and Oakland. The first party stop will be at Street Level Cycles, a non-profit bike shop offering free space, tools and information on repairing and maintaining bicycles. Plus, they sell parts and accessories like a traditional bike shop to help fund their work.

If you want to get more involved in helping build and strengthen Bike Party, we’d love to see you on Test Rides (like the one coming up on Thursday night, Nov. 3 – leaving from MacArthur BART promptly at 7:15pm).

Another way to get involved is by volunteering in advance to direct riders through corners on ride night. Riders always love you for it and it’s not hard to do. In fact, we demonstrate proper “turn guiding” technique on our Test Rides. And if you want a hand in planning a route (or even a ride), you can join us at the monthly planning meetings. To get information about the next meeting, email ebbikeparty{at}

Get ready for some déjà vu on November 11th. The TWINS RIDE is going to be epic. Say it with me:
