Boston Bike Party - MOvember vs. NovemBEARD

It's getting cold out there and it's the season to show off your facial hair. Will you be on Team NovemBEARD (beards) or Team MOvember (mustaches)? Pick a side and wear a beard or mustache - REAL or FAKE!

Route is about 10-11 miles, includes a "party stop" and will finish near Fenway Park.  It's a slow paced, easy, casual ride.  A few small sections of cobblestone, and a bunch of back-alley connector streets.  This route is all about tight squeezes, & Boston's hidden streets. The after party will be at Yard House on Boylston St, just outside Fenway.

From the event page:

"Movember is a special time of year where men grow facial hair to raise awareness about male-specific health issues. Men sometimes suck at getting the help we need. You probably know a man who is more willing to bike around in circles rather than stopping to ask for directions… it’s a pride thing. I certainly have been known to be “too macho” to ask for the help I need. This is especially true with men and health related issues. MOVEMBER is the time of year where we grow facial hair as a way to remind ourselves that to be healthy is to be manly. And getting checked out is the manly thing to do.

Ladies, we need your help too. It’s not just a man-thing, it’s an education thing. Sometimes men need the support of a female, so you gotta play your role too. Fake facial hair is highly encouraged at the ride."

    The after party will be at Yard House near Fenway Park. I worked out a deal with the manager to use the patio area as a bike corral! Bring your lock to be extra safe... oh, and Happy Hour menu applies, so most apps will be CHEAP!
