HEY BIKE PARTIERS! HERE’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR THIS MONTH! PLEASE READ (and share)!
First and foremost! This month Bike Party is at the new City Garage! That means we will be inside and partying all night (okay, til 1:30…) so make sure to be there, be in costume, and make sure your friends are all there too! Even if they don’t ride, they are welcome to come join us for the after party.
ROUTE: Here’s the route for this month!
Here’s the cue sheet!
START: Meet at 6:30 at St Mary’s Park in Seton Hill and roll out at 7pm SHARP. Every month Seton Hill Community Association sell snacks/drinks and provides bathrooms for us in the building in the park! ALSO, Race Pace Bicycles is always on hand to help out with last minute tweaks!
WHAT TO BRING: Check out what you need to bring here!
NO BIKE? No problem! Rec & Parks will loan you one, for free! Just email BCRP.Bikes@baltimorecity.gov with your name, phone #, & height. If under 18, an adult will need to sign.
RULES: We will be riding under WEST COAST RULES, stopping at red lights. What does that mean? DON’T BLOCK ONCOMING TRAFFIC. Read this please
DON’T LEAVE YOUR BIKE UNATTENDED. As many of you know, theft has been an issue at the rest stops. Be smart! Don’t leave your bike without locking it up!
AFTER PARTY: This month we are ending at City Garage in Port Covington! Check out this link for a layout of the party.
CAR PARKING: If you are driving to the end before the ride, or joining us at the after party, please park along DICKMAN ST. See the above link for a map.
BIKE PARKING: When you roll into the after party, take your bike into The Foundery Building! This is the corral for this month. Lock your bike to itself or your friend’s bikes and our security guards will make sure no one else takes it. Then you can head over for all the partying! For more info read here.
EATING AND DRINKING: The food trucks will be outside and the beer will be inside. However our permit does NOT allow alcohol to be consumed outside this month, so grab your grub on your way in! In order to get a drink you need a wristband and tickets! Wristbands are free (bring your ID) and tickets will be on sale inside for $4 each or 3 for $10. Cash is king. We have a square reader, but cash will get your tickets quicker!
COSTUME CONTEST: That’s right! This month we are having an epic costume contest. Nominations will be made during the ride, so make sure to look your best! The contest will be at the DJ booth during the after party with the crowd favorites winning lots of swag from Race Pace Bicycles and the grand prize winner getting a BRAND NEW BIKE courtesy of OrderUp Baltimore! Yup, a NEW BIKE.
VOLUNTEERING: Wanna help keep Bike Party awesome? Volunteer for a shift at the after party! Volunteers for this month not only get 2 FREE drink tickets but get FREE dinner from OrderUp Baltimore! Sign up here.
DONATING: Bike Party continues to become a more and more expensive event. However it is and will continue to be FREE, so consider making a donation here to help us keep the party rolling!
