7/29 BBP: Beach Party!

 

 

beachparty2

Grab your bike and bikini body (AKA, that body you have right now) and beach it up with the BBP Beach Party themed ride! It’s summer-living on this seaside. Expect: shells, swimmies, sunscreen, sharks, sand, and sailors. And other non-S beach theme costumes and bikes.

We meet as usual at 6:30 p.m. at St Mary’s Park in Seton Hill and roll out at 7 p.m. The ride, in development as you read, will be around 8 to 10 miles, ending at Lexington Market.

Volunteers get free drink tickets, discounts on merch, get to cut in the beer line, and get to help put on the best party in Baltimore. Check out and sign up for volunteer shifts at this page https://baltimorebikeparty.com/volunteer-info/

6/24 Baltimore Bike Party: Back to the Future!

bttf4

Great Scott! Grab your DeLorean and your Calvin Kleins, cause it’s Bike Party “Back to the Future” style! If you’re fresh out of 1981 sports cars, just grab your bike and join the roll through Baltimore from our starting point in St. Mary’s Park to the block on West Lanvale between Charles and Maryland, right near Velocipede Bike Project.Like usual, meet at 6:30 and roll out at 7 p.m.

With tooling around the city well under the 88 miles per hour and 1.21 gigawatts needed for time travel, we’ll cover the usual 8-10 miles and most likely just stay in June 24, 2016. But, if you want to celebrate the eras and just can’t make your hair look like Doc’s, embrace 80’s neon or 50’s poodle skirts and still be theme-tastic.

Needed info:

1. Here’s the route and cue sheet (turn by turn directions!)

2. 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.

3. We’ll be ending at the unit block of West Lanvale and will party till 11pm.

4. 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 (and cheaper… it’s +$1 per square transaction)!

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

6. Photobooth: Side A Photography will be snapping your pics as usual!

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

Baltimore Bike Party: Moonlit Madness!

Pull out your bike lights. Your neon. Your electroluminescent wires (you know, those old things), fun tire lights, and glowsticks. Or maybe even that werewolf “costume.” Whether it’s your bike or yomoonlit2u, it’s the time to be flashy and bright ‘cause it’s MOONLIT MADNESS Bike Party!

Not officially in step with Light City Baltimore because well, timing, we still decided to get into the spirit with this classic theme as we’re the week before the festival. This month’s ride will end at Mount Vernon Marketplace where all vendors will be open to us. Yum.

Like usual, meeting at St. Mary’s Park at 6, roll out at 7 p.m. The ride is Friday, March 25, last Friday of the month as usual.

All ages welcome. All wattage and lux accepted. Just bring your brilliant you on wheels. More information to come.

Ride, Respect, & Revelry,

Baltimore Bike Party
