Here’s what you need to know:

2. Cue sheet (also may have minor tweaks after the preride tonight)

3. 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. This month we’ll end at Diamondback Brewery in Locust Point for dancing, drinks, and food!

5. Diamondback is giving Bike Party $1 per drink to support summer rides. To help them keep track, please make sure you get a wristband before entering the brewery. Volunteers will be giving out wristbands at the ride and at the bar.

6. Parked out front for your eating convenience is Farm to Charm. Food is allowed inside Diamondback, but drinks are not allowed outside. NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL in Diamondback, please!

3tributec4

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. 30, 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.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Here’s the route 

2. Cue sheet

3. Meet as usual at 6:30 at St Mary’s Park in Seton Hill and roll out at7pm SHARP. Every month Seton Hill Community Association provides bathrooms for us in the building in the park.

4. This month we’ll end at De Kleine Dulvel in Hampden for dancing, drinks, the photobooth, and food!

5. You must bring your ID in order to get into De Kleine Dulvel – under 21ers are allowed, but still need to bring an ID. Volunteers will be giving out wristbands at the ride and at the bar.

6. Lock up your bike in the alley north of the bar. Lock it to itself or to a friend’s, but please do not lock to the American Legion fence.

7. Parked out front for your eating convenience is a TBD food truck. Food is allowed inside De Kleine, but drinks are not allowed outside.

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

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

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

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.

1. Here’s the route (cue sheet to come soon!)

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 Baltimore Whiskey Company and will party till midnight!

4. Heavy Seas will be there with beer along with 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.

9. Click these links to check out what you need to bring and how to lock up.

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.
