After 2 years of rugged service, the speakers on our faithful music trailer have bit the dust :'( For Friday, we have temporary solution planned, but look for a new thumpin system to appear in June, bigger and better than ever!

Unfortunately our budget is always tight. Please consider making a donation to Bike Party below to ensure that we continue to bring the good vibes to all corners of Baltimore!

May Bike Party 5/29 – Prom!!

bbp prom

hey folks, it’s that time of year again! Grab your tux, dress, date, and bike and come help spread the love in our wonderful city! This month we will be riding through the west side and ending at Lexington Market.

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!!!!!

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 provides bathrooms for us in the building in the park!

4) Check out what you need to bring here!

5) PARKING: We encourage everyone to BIKE to the event, but if you are coming from out of town, please park near the after party! You can park in the LEXINGTON MARKET GARAGE, which is the 2-story garage on Paca street across from the market! Other garages in the area *MAY* close early! From there, it’s a short 4 block ride up Paca to the starting point.

6) AFTER PARTY: We will be ending this month at Lexington Market! There will be lots of yummy food from market vendors as well as the usual beer, wine, dancing, photobooth, etc!

7) For those new to Bike Party, 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. There is an ATM at the market (inside) or we can accept cards at the ticket table, but cash will get your tickets quicker!

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

9) When you arrive at the after party, please PUT YOUR BIKE INSIDE THE CORRAL. Bikes locked up outside of the fenced-in lot are MUCH more vulnerable to theft! Read more about how to lock up here.

10) Don’t forget to dress your best to get crowned as prom royalty!

HEY BIKE PARTIERS!

Baltimore Bike Party was started out of a strong love of this city, its wonderful places, and its beautiful people. While there is much to celebrate, we also recognize that Baltimore still faces numerous challenges. As most of you know, many fellow citizens are feeling pain, anger, and frustration in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray, and protests have been organized around the city.

Out of respect for these efforts, you will notice that our route has changed slightly to avoid disrupting their work. Even still, there is a high probability that we will encounter protestors at some point during our event. We ask that our riders please be respectful of their voice, their right to assemble, and their vision for a better Baltimore. This doesn’t mean you have to wipe the smile off your face, but be aware of what is going on around you and be courteous and polite to everyone we see. Engage those around you in conversation and roll past conflict or confrontation. If we are kind, patient, and respectful of those we meet then we will have a great time.

Bike Party adores this city and we want to see it continue to grow into a stronger, better Baltimore. We recognize and respect the protest groups’ efforts to carry out this same vision and if you do feel moved to take part in the protests, we recommend checking out Baltimore Bloc for more information. Likewise, we ask that if you ride with us, please be respectful of Bike Party’s spirit of joy and positivity. There is plenty of room in this city for both, and both are essential.

Our love for Baltimore runs deep. This month marks Bike Party’s 3rd anniversary (it’s okay, you don’t have to buy us anything). We cannot express how much appreciation we have for everyone who has been on the rides, or high-fived us from the sidewalk, or hollered out their 2nd story window. We have never been more committed to this endeavor than we are right now and can’t wait to see all your shining pirate-y faces!

Read the post below for all the details on the ride!
