Boston Bike Party

****UPDATE****

Here is the official route:

http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2742796

-------------------------------

Boston area cyclists, you don't want to miss this!  Its the 3rd Boston Bike Party Ride!

Join hundreds of cyclists for a casual group ride around the city!  There will be lights, music, tandems, unicycles, joy, and of course tons of bikes!!!

 

Here is a link to our event page:

https://www.facebook.com/events/145153342344751/


Here is a link to a short video filmed at our first ride this past May:

http://vimeo.com/67349854

 

We ride on the city streets with the flow of traffic, but if you're in the middle of the group you probably won't even see a single car because we will more or less fill the whole road. We stay to the right, we stop at reds, we work with the city to make this happen.  Basically this is a good safe ride that is a lot of fun, and hopefully we'll see you there.  Check out the video above to get a sense of what the ride will be like.

Oh, and invite your friends!  if they don't have a bike, they can rent one from Urban Adventours which is right up the street from where we start.  But reserve early!  Or they can grab a Hubway for a few hours.

 

See you there!

      I will attend next month for sure. I am going to learn how to use the train. It is just that I've never been in a train.

    Excellent, the STOP sign blockers were great and it was a real surprise in Brookline when the police were nice enough to block for us. My first ride also.

    Is there a good place to park if you have to drive?

    July 9, 2013

    • Jon R.

      You can try your luck on Summer Street south of the Fort Point Channel, there are tons of metered spaces around there, many of which empty out after 6pm. Or just head to one of the parking garages around downtown boston. A google map search can pinpoint them for you.

    I'll be biking down from Davis Square around 7:00 if anyone wants to ride down together. The ride leaves Dewey Square at 8:00.

      Hello Mr. G, Are you riding back to Davis after the event? I need to go that way as well and would appreciate having the company. Please let me know.

      July 8, 2013

    • David G

      Hi K, I'll be riding back to Davis. I likely won't stay very late. I found there were a number of people heading back to Cambridge after the first ride, so maybe we can get a small group together.

    Weather looks good for tomorrow night!

    Hey everyone, just want to make sure that everyone has a bike that is in good working order. This is a slow ride so its not like your bike needs to be in peak condition or anything, but be sure to inflate your tires to the correct PSI (should be written on the side of your tire) because getting a pinch flat would be a real bummer. Lights are a good idea too... and technically required by MA law. There is one section where we ride through the river path (paved) but there isn't much for street lighting. See and be seen.

    Jon, What ever happened to the guy whose crank fell out on the first ride? I think I'll pack a few tools for the next ride!

    1 · July 4, 2013

    • Jon R.

      I didn't know that someone lost a crank! I was all the way up front leading the ride so I didn't even know about that

      July 5, 2013

    • David G

      It was quite a sight to see. I didn't stop because there was nothing I could have done. I'll throw a few tools in my pack this time.

    Hey Bill, this is a SLOW ride. The group will ride with traffic and as a unified "herd" if you will. There will be volunteers to help regulate traffic but no support vehicles for flats or anything like that. Almost everywhere the route goes will have public transit nearby, and it might be a good idea to bring a u-lock if you plan on getting food after (we usually finish near restaurants)

    I will have lights. How long is the event? What about security at an event or is the ride a slow one?
