    If any of you are interested, there will be another Musical Mystery Ride again TONIGHT at 7pm. I can't make it this time, but maybe you can. Looks to be a different lineup of musical performances. Info here: www.facebook.com/events/[masked]/[masked]/

    Jon,

    Your Aug.13 ride sounds fantastic. I have a Logitech s715i that I plan to set-up on my bike in 12V mode which keeps the subwoofer
    on and 5W/channel. My Sony MP3 has 1400 songs in 256K bit rate
    AAC so it will be quality sound, though I have mostly oldies and
    country. Jimmy

      We are trying to get more people to bring music systems, so that would be perfect! The event is called Boston Bike Party, and we always create a "collaborative playlist" on Spotify. So everyone gets to add music to the playlist online, then the people with music systems stream the playlist onto a smartphone. This way everyone gets to hear the music that they added (like a jukebox!). We'll be posting the next ride soon on Facebook. So check out: https://www.facebook.c...­

    I think this should be run again as the rain kept many people away and thepeople who have seen my pictures want to go. You
    really don't need the musician stops, I recommend making a longer loop and just ride around the Charles on both sides with music on the bikes.

      James, I have another evening musical ride coming up soon. No live music, just music trailers. There are typically 300+ people on those rides weather pending. I'll post on this site when more info is available. But you can mark your calendar now, it will be 7:30pm at Dewey Square, Aug. 13th.

    Hey guys, really sorry, won't be able to make it in this weather :S

    July 26, 2013

  • Rob G.

    You guys don't mind if I bring my camera and take a couple of shots. Do you?

    July 26, 2013

    • Jon R.

      Cameras welcome

      July 26, 2013

  • Jon R.

    Its cold out, so a jacket would be a good idea. maybe pants too if you are prone to being cold. The ride will be very casual.

    July 26, 2013

    • Heather

      So disappointed it's raining.

      July 26, 2013

  • Heather

    Jon, how are we going to find you/the group? Bike pants/shorts probably a good idea, right?

    Thanks!

    Heather[masked]

    July 26, 2013

    • Jon R.

      casual clothes are a good idea (no need for lycra or spandex on this one). I'd dress on the warm side.

      July 26, 2013

  • Jon R.

    Be there at 8pm, Smith Field in Allston. Approx address is 230 Western Ave, Allston MA. There is street parking on Western Ave, and at that time you should be able to find parking. Also N.Harvard Street also has street parking available. The group will gather at the Bike Polo court, which is behind the softball fields. You'll spot me pulling a trailer with a speaker in the back playing music!

    July 26, 2013

  • Heather

    Also, what time should we meet? Is there limited parking? Sorry, for all the questions.

    July 26, 2013

  • Jon R.

    Playing it by ear is fine! The ground will be wet from rain all day, but I don't think its supposed to rain while we are riding.

    July 26, 2013

  • Heather

    I'm playing it by ear too. Riding, rain and glasses are a tough combination. 8-|

    July 26, 2013

  • Sue P

    I'm a bit of a wuss when bikes and rain are involed. I hope it's oky to play it by ear.

    July 26, 2013

  • Diane

    I'll be there depending in the weather. I know it's oon rain or shine

    July 26, 2013

    So this thing is still on despite the crappy weather. Just remember, this story will be even better when you retell it to your friends!

    July 22, 2013

    Sounds like great fun! I'm relatively new to the area. What a great combination of cycling and music.

    Aren't bike lights F&R required? I don't want to ride with cyclists w/o lights.

    July 21, 2013

    • Jon R.

      in MA, lights are indeed required 30 mins before sunset, and 30 mins after sunrise. There will be over 100 people on this ride, the vast majority will have bright blinky lights on. Like a disco!
