Here’s everything you need to know about the August ’15 ride!

(and more)

Grab your clown shoes, top hat, or strong-man leotard and join Bike Party as we parade around town!

1) Here’s the route.
Here’s the cue sheet.

2) We will be riding under WEST COAST RULES, stopping at red lights. Why? Read THIS please.

3) START: Meet as usual 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!

4) Check out what you need to bring here!

5) AFTER PARTY: This month we are partnering with the New Greenmount West Community Association (NGWCA) for a great block party at 400 E Lanvale. There will be all the usual beer, wine, food trucks, photo booth, music, and even a MOONBOUNCE! We are asking for a 1-drink-ticket donation to use the moonbounce to cover the cost, so buy an extra one!

6) You must purchase TICKETS at the ticket table in order to get drinks! 1 ticket = 1 drink. Tickets are $4 each or 3 for $10. Cash is king. We do have a square reader, but cash will get your tickets so much quicker!

7) In order to drink, you need a wrist band! There is no charge for these but be sure to bring your ID.

8) When you arrive at the after party, please PUT YOUR BIKE INSIDE THE DESIGNATED FENCING. There will be plenty of security inside the party, so lock to your friends and have a good time! Bikes locked up outside of the fenced-in lot are MUCH more vulnerable to theft! For more info read here.

9) Bike Party continues to be a more and more expensive event. It is and will continue to be a FREE event, so consider making a donation here to help us keep the party rolling!

10) If you don’t already, follow our new Twitter and Instagram @bmorebikeparty. (cause FB wants us to pay them to give you all the necessary info!) Also, since hashtags are a thing, let’s unite with#bmorebikeparty !

Baltimore Bike Party and Dirt Bikes

On August 13th, an op-ed was published by the Washington Post about the 12 o’clock Boys and Baltimore’s dirt bike riding culture.  The article incorrectly identified Bike Party as a place for “bicyclists and motorcyclist enthusiasts.”  We have since requested a change to WP, but want to make it clear to anyone who may have been linked to our site:

While we take no issue with the motorcycle and atv riding culture in the city, Baltimore Bike Party does NOT ALLOW ANY MOTORIZED VEHICLES to participate.  This would create a great danger to other participants.  Any and all people are welcome to attend our free event, but they must do so on a human-powered vehicle (bicycle, roller skates, skate board, unicycle).  Thank you for your understanding.

July 7/31 Baltimore Bike Party – 60s and 70s Flower Power

Ever wish you could have lived through the free-lovin’ 60’s and 70’s? Or maybe you did and keep thinking “what’s with the kids these days already nostalgic for the 90’s??” Either way, this month Bike Party pays homage to a time when everyone had bell bottoms on their legs and flowers in their hair.

So come on out and bring your friends!

As always, meet at St Mary’s Park at 6:30 for a 7pm roll-out on 7/31.  This month we will be ending by the 520 Park Ave apartments for plenty of food, drink, dancing, and fun!

1) Here’s the route for this month!
Here’s the cue sheet!

2) We will be riding under WEST COAST RULES, stopping at red lights. What does that mean? Read THIS please.

4) Check out what you need to bring here!

5) AFTER PARTY: We will be ending this month in the lot at 520 Park Ave! There will be all the usual beer, wine, food trucks, photo booth, and music!

6) PARKING: This month our after party is only 3 blocks from the start! There is plenty of street parking in the area, so we ask that you do not park on lot at the 520 Park apartments, that’s where our party is being held and we don’t need your car in the middle of the party!
