BBP: The Tribute Ride 12/30/16

tributec4

We’re going to pour one out (aka, ride one out) for the homies that aren’t with us no more. 2016 has been, er, a challenge to say the least. And we’ve lost a lot of great people. Honor your favorite by dressing up yourself or your bike in remembrance of their achievements, their verve, their greatness.

On Friday, Dec. 20, we’ll gather at St. Mary’s Park, come at 6:30, ride at 7 p.m. We’ll wrap up at De Kleine Duivel, a Belgian bar/restaurant in Hampden, yum.

Come party like it’s (barely still) 2016!

Ride, Respect, Revelry,
Baltimore Bike Party

P.S. Bonus points for someone who finds us a Bike Party friendly version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Not too fast, not too slow, but juuuuust right.

The theme is simple: Halloween. The party goes until midnight this year, so make sure your costume can go the distance. Be cute, be scary, be funny, but above all, be costumed. If you want to bring candy, the more power to ya. Reverse trick or treat to the peeps you see on the ride? Even more. Spread that love (and sugar).

See you Friday. If you dare.
