WHO & WHAT
East Bay Bike Party (EBBP) is a mobile party for riders of all ages, experience levels, and types to meet, ride, and play together in the streets. EBBP is a 100% volunteer organized event for and by bike enthusiasts to celebrate community and human power. Rides are casual, with party stops at public spaces along a 10-15 mile route that changes every month. Attendees are encouraged to express themselves by participating in each ride’s theme, and music bikes are welcome to help shape a positive experience right here in our own community.
EBBP always meets near a BART station and encourages public transit use for a car-free event. Test rides, which are intended to refine each month’s route, occur leading up to the party. The exact route and stops are posted 24 hours prior to each month’s event.
Once per month, all year. EBBP meets at 7:30pm every second Friday of the month, and we roll at 8:00pm.
HOW WE RIDE
EBBP is a community-based event, so we rely on self-policing and respect for safety and our core values. For more information, read about our values (http://bit.ly/EBBPabout) and understand our simple ride rules (http://bit.ly/EBBPhowweride). Your participation means respecting each other and observing these principles:
1. Stay to the right
2. Stop at lights
3. Ride straight
4. Don’t hate
5. Pack your trash
6. Don’t get smashed
Bike Party participants should be self-sufficient. Come prepared!
* Lights – Be seen by others!
* Locks – Don’t get your bike stolen at party stops!
* Layers – Dress appropriately for a nighttime outdoor event!
* Water – Hydration is good for you!
* Flat Kit – Bring a tube, pump, multi-tool, etc.
When in doubt, BIKE PARTY!
