Boston Bike Party - Down By The Boardwalk!

Boston Bike Party's first themed ride: DOWN BY THE BOARDWALK

It's summer, its hot outside, but when the sun goes down the BOARDWALK is the place to be and be seen. Enjoy summer night on the boardwalk with us.

Come dressed in your favorite summer night boardwalk attire! Maybe its classy Jackie-O sunglasses in your hair, Maybe is a beach towel around your waist, Maybe your inspiration comes from the Jersey Shore... Tan-lines and beach wear welcome!

Once again we are expecting a VERY large turnout (300+ people) so this will be an event not to be missed. It's totally free, totally fun, and we have a team of volunteers to help at street crossings to keep everyone safe.

Check out the Facebook Event page, in case you want to invite your FB friends who are not on Meetup.  Be sure to have front / rear lights, a bike in good working condition, a friend to ride home with or take the T with (no judgement) afterward. 

The exact route will be posted soon, but I do know that it starts in Dewey Square, will go through the Seaport area, through Back Bay, then end in Kendall Square.

See you on the boardwalk!

    Hi Everyone,
    I created a NEW meetup event for the Boston Bike Party ride that was rescheduled due to threat of T-storms (which never actually came). If you did the mini-ride last Tuesday, thats awesome, but I KNOW this route will be much more fun. Hope you can make it!

    So OFFICIALLY, the ride has been postponed until next week. However, there seems to be a group forming that will meet at 7:30pm at Dewey Square and do an alternate ride. Same start point, same ending point, meet at the same time. so basically nothing really changed except there will be way less people there.

      hope everyone can still make it, but if not, no worries!

    You guys are awesome! In some ways tonight's smaller scale ride will be just as good if not better than the scheduled one.

    Hey everyone, Just letting you know that there is now a POLL on the Facebook Event Page, to determine if the majority of people would prefer to postpone 'till next week in hopes of better weather.

    Please check the link often to determine if we ride tonight or next week!

    Thanks,
    Jon

    I'll be pulling one of the music trailers (possibly the only one) so that's how you can spot me. I'm one of the organizers for the overall event so I'll be kinda running around making sure the volunteers know what they need to do etc, but PLEASE be sure to give me a wave and say hello.

    Looks like the rain will ease up around the time the ride is set to leave. You can always take the train to South Station (bikes are allowed on the T after 7pm) if you want to stay dry before we set off. OR you can wear a bathing suit, that way if you get wet its no big deal!

    Hi Rachel! Who's psyched about this ride?!?!?! So far there are 180 people signed up on the Facebook page... should be a great time!

      Hi Rachel, we will ride as a VERY large group [masked] people). No chance of getting lost, I promise. Just make sure you know how to get home from the end point which is Kendall Square in Cambridge. At the start, we congregate at Dewey Square which is outside South Station at 7:30pm and roll out at 8pm. You'll know you're in the right place when you see a ton of bicyclists! Large groups like this go pretty darn slow... I think we'll get to the end around 10:30ish.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
