East Bay Bike Party presents: A Special Halloween Parade Ride!

East Bay Bike Party presents: A Special Halloween Parade Ride!
Remember in elementary school, everyone gathering outside in their costumes and parading around the blacktop?! Or, maybe you or little ones close to you are doing that this Halloween! Well we invite you to a Halloween parade, ON BIKES!

This route will start an hour earlier than bike party (meetup 6:30, roll 7). It will also be a very short route at a slow pace. We invite everyone to come out in their costumes, spooky or not, and parade around Berkeley for a fun ride for all. Route starts at Ashby BART and ends at Ashby too.

Light up yourself and your bike! It’s gonna be dark already!!! Also locks and layers, bike tools, everything you need for a self supported bike ride.

The ride will probably end on the early side. Plenty of time to roll deep with your friends to Halloween festivities later in the night.

Not feeling a slower, chiller bike party? Maybe check out Critical Mass in SF! They ride on the last Friday of every month, at 5:30pm at Pee Wee Herman Plaza at the foot of Market Street. Critical Mass is now over 25 years old, and we wouldn’t be where we are in regards to urban cycling and cycling culture without them. Check out their dos & donts – http://www.sfcriticalmass.org/2009/10/27/critical-mass-dos-donts/
