BBP: Party Animals! 9/30

kangarooHey Party Animals,

Not just dogs can ride a bike. They get all the YouTube glory, but we know the animal kingdom is full of two-wheel wannabes. Celebrate this Zootember (oops, we meant September) ride with your best animal costume or wheeled steed.

The ride is Friday, September 30. We’ll start at the usual spot, St. Mary’s Park in Seton Hill, meeting at 6:30 p.m. and leaving at 7 p.m. to ride around Baltimore, ending in the unit block of Park Ave between Baltimore and Fayette.

More info to come!

Ride, Respect, Revelry,
Baltimore Bike Party

P.S. We know you have leopard print something. Don’t even lie.

BBP: Purple Friday! 8/26

ravens2We’re teaming up with the Ravens for a bike party that will be a touchdown (sorry, couldn’t resist). We’re still tackling some final details (and will share them as soon as possible!), but the ride will end near M&T Bank stadium with food and beer, and oh, did we mention that we’re teaming up with the Ravens? Ravens cheerleaders and Poe will be at the after-party! It’s going to be claw-some. Bicyclists of a feather flock together! Ok, puns over. But not the excitement.

Here’s what you need to know:

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 Lot C of M&T Bank Stadium and will party till 11pm.

4. Heavy Seas will there with beer and Everything Turkey, Farm to Charm, Green Bowl, and Sexy Veggie will be serving up delicious food!

5. You must purchase drink TICKETS at the ticket table in order to get beer and wine! 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)!

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

7. Get your wrist band and tickets at the blue box on this map.

And lock up your bike INSIDE the party (preferably in the yellow box). We have security to monitor the party area, but cannot guarantee the security of bikes locked up outside the party area.

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

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

Great Scott! Grab your DeLorean and your Calvin Kleins, cause it’s Bike Party “Back to the Future” style!

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.
