East Bay Bike Party @ Various Venues near a Bart Station
Aug 8 @ 2:30 AM – 6:45 AM

East Bay Bike Party

WHO & WHAT
EBBP is a mobile party for riders of all ages, experience levels, and types to meet, ride, and play together in the streets. Rides are 12-16 miles long with 2 stops at public spaces along the route. Rides move at a slow pace and volunteers assure everyone makes the correct turns. Riders express their creativity through the ride’s theme. Music is a big part of the EBBP experience along the route and at the party stops where dancing is common. Each ride is a unique, once in a lifetime experience right here in your own backyard.

WHERE
EBBP starts and ends at, or near an East Bay BART station so participants can use public transportation. A volunteer plans a different route every month. Test rides refine the route. Monitor the East Bay Bike Party Facebook group for test ride events. New volunteers are encouraged to attend. The route is not posted ahead of time because we don’t want non-bike partiers to join at a party stop of their convenience.

WHEN
Once per month, all year long. We meet at 7:30pm of every single SECOND FRIDAY of the month, and roll out at 8pm. We’re always near a BART station in time to get back on one of the later trains.

HOW
EBBP is safe and fun because bike partiers know how to behave. EB bike partiers are known for their friendly, welcoming vibe. That vibe is expected at the rides as well as on on posts made to the EBBP Facebook group. Keep the tone positive, and keep all discourse civil and respectful. During the party itself, the following behavior is expected:
- Stay to the Right / Stop at Lights – We’re NOT Critical Mass. We share the roadway appropriately.
- Ride Straight – Bike party sometimes exceeds 1,000 riders. Riding predictably avoids crashes in a large group.
- Don’t Hate – Please roll past any conflict that might present itself during the ride. Be civil.
- Pack your Trash – Bike partiers aspire to leave party stops in better condition than we found them. Be prepared to carry trash home from every single bike party. Public trash cans at party stops cannot support 1,000 bike partiers. Bring a plastic bag to pack trash.
- Don’t Get Smashed – Riding while inebriated poses a danger to yourself and others. Don’t ruin everybody else’s fun by overdoing it.
- Call out anybody failing to behave, and back up others who make those call-outs.

BRING
* Lights – Rides are at night. Best to be SEEN.
* Locks – Thieves can ride off on unattended bikes. Lock bikes together at the party stops.
* Layers – It’s all outdoors, and the temp typically drops a few degrees by night’s end.
* Water, refreshments, snacks, plastic bag – You’ll expend some energy, and need a way to pack your trash.
* Tube, patch kit, pump, tools – The ride is unsupported, please come prepared.

East Bay Bike Party @ Various Venues near a Bart Station
Aug 8 @ 2:30 AM – 6:45 AM

East Bay Bike Party

WHO & WHAT
EBBP is a mobile party for riders of all ages, experience levels, and types to meet, ride, and play together in the streets. Rides are 12-16 miles long with 2 stops at public spaces along the route. Rides move at a slow pace and volunteers assure everyone makes the correct turns. Riders express their creativity through the ride’s theme. Music is a big part of the EBBP experience along the route and at the party stops where dancing is common. Each ride is a unique, once in a lifetime experience right here in your own backyard.

WHERE
EBBP starts and ends at, or near an East Bay BART station so participants can use public transportation. A volunteer plans a different route every month. Test rides refine the route. Monitor the East Bay Bike Party Facebook group for test ride events. New volunteers are encouraged to attend. The route is not posted ahead of time because we don’t want non-bike partiers to join at a party stop of their convenience.

WHEN
Once per month, all year long. We meet at 7:30pm of every single SECOND FRIDAY of the month, and roll out at 8pm. We’re always near a BART station in time to get back on one of the later trains.

HOW
EBBP is safe and fun because bike partiers know how to behave. EB bike partiers are known for their friendly, welcoming vibe. That vibe is expected at the rides as well as on on posts made to the EBBP Facebook group. Keep the tone positive, and keep all discourse civil and respectful. During the party itself, the following behavior is expected:
- Stay to the Right / Stop at Lights – We’re NOT Critical Mass. We share the roadway appropriately.
- Ride Straight – Bike party sometimes exceeds 1,000 riders. Riding predictably avoids crashes in a large group.
- Don’t Hate – Please roll past any conflict that might present itself during the ride. Be civil.
- Pack your Trash – Bike partiers aspire to leave party stops in better condition than we found them. Be prepared to carry trash home from every single bike party. Public trash cans at party stops cannot support 1,000 bike partiers. Bring a plastic bag to pack trash.
- Don’t Get Smashed – Riding while inebriated poses a danger to yourself and others. Don’t ruin everybody else’s fun by overdoing it.
- Call out anybody failing to behave, and back up others who make those call-outs.

BRING
* Lights – Rides are at night. Best to be SEEN.
* Locks – Thieves can ride off on unattended bikes. Lock bikes together at the party stops.
* Layers – It’s all outdoors, and the temp typically drops a few degrees by night’s end.
* Water, refreshments, snacks, plastic bag – You’ll expend some energy, and need a way to pack your trash.
* Tube, patch kit, pump, tools – The ride is unsupported, please come prepared.

Aug 8 @ 2:30 AM – 6:45 AM

East Bay Bike Party

WHO & WHAT
EBBP is a mobile party for riders of all ages, experience levels, and types to meet, ride, and play together in the streets. Rides are 12-16 miles long with 2 stops at public spaces along the route. Rides move at a slow pace and volunteers assure everyone makes the correct turns. Riders express their creativity through the ride’s theme. Music is a big part of the EBBP experience along the route and at the party stops where dancing is common. Each ride is a unique, once in a lifetime experience right here in your own backyard.

WHERE
EBBP starts and ends at, or near an East Bay BART station so participants can use public transportation. A volunteer plans a different route every month. Test rides refine the route. Monitor the East Bay Bike Party Facebook group for test ride events. New volunteers are encouraged to attend. The route is not posted ahead of time because we don’t want non-bike partiers to join at a party stop of their convenience.

WHEN
Once per month, all year long. We meet at 7:30pm of every single SECOND FRIDAY of the month, and roll out at 8pm. We’re always near a BART station in time to get back on one of the later trains.

HOW
EBBP is safe and fun because bike partiers know how to behave. EB bike partiers are known for their friendly, welcoming vibe. That vibe is expected at the rides as well as on on posts made to the EBBP Facebook group. Keep the tone positive, and keep all discourse civil and respectful. During the party itself, the following behavior is expected:
- Stay to the Right / Stop at Lights – We’re NOT Critical Mass. We share the roadway appropriately.
- Ride Straight – Bike party sometimes exceeds 1,000 riders. Riding predictably avoids crashes in a large group.
- Don’t Hate – Please roll past any conflict that might present itself during the ride. Be civil.
- Pack your Trash – Bike partiers aspire to leave party stops in better condition than we found them. Be prepared to carry trash home from every single bike party. Public trash cans at party stops cannot support 1,000 bike partiers. Bring a plastic bag to pack trash.
- Don’t Get Smashed – Riding while inebriated poses a danger to yourself and others. Don’t ruin everybody else’s fun by overdoing it.
- Call out anybody failing to behave, and back up others who make those call-outs.

BRING
* Lights – Rides are at night. Best to be SEEN.
* Locks – Thieves can ride off on unattended bikes. Lock bikes together at the party stops.
* Layers – It’s all outdoors, and the temp typically drops a few degrees by night’s end.
* Water, refreshments, snacks, plastic bag – You’ll expend some energy, and need a way to pack your trash.
* Tube, patch kit, pump, tools – The ride is unsupported, please come prepared.

East Bay Bike Party @ Various Venues near a Bart Station
Aug 8 @ 2:30 AM – 6:45 AM

East Bay Bike Party

WHO & WHAT
EBBP is a mobile party for riders of all ages, experience levels, and types to meet, ride, and play together in the streets. Rides are 12-16 miles long with 2 stops at public spaces along the route. Rides move at a slow pace and volunteers assure everyone makes the correct turns. Riders express their creativity through the ride’s theme. Music is a big part of the EBBP experience along the route and at the party stops where dancing is common. Each ride is a unique, once in a lifetime experience right here in your own backyard.

WHERE
EBBP starts and ends at, or near an East Bay BART station so participants can use public transportation. A volunteer plans a different route every month. Test rides refine the route. Monitor the East Bay Bike Party Facebook group for test ride events. New volunteers are encouraged to attend. The route is not posted ahead of time because we don’t want non-bike partiers to join at a party stop of their convenience.

WHEN
Once per month, all year long. We meet at 7:30pm of every single SECOND FRIDAY of the month, and roll out at 8pm. We’re always near a BART station in time to get back on one of the later trains.

HOW
EBBP is safe and fun because bike partiers know how to behave. EB bike partiers are known for their friendly, welcoming vibe. That vibe is expected at the rides as well as on on posts made to the EBBP Facebook group. Keep the tone positive, and keep all discourse civil and respectful. During the party itself, the following behavior is expected:
- Stay to the Right / Stop at Lights – We’re NOT Critical Mass. We share the roadway appropriately.
- Ride Straight – Bike party sometimes exceeds 1,000 riders. Riding predictably avoids crashes in a large group.
- Don’t Hate – Please roll past any conflict that might present itself during the ride. Be civil.
- Pack your Trash – Bike partiers aspire to leave party stops in better condition than we found them. Be prepared to carry trash home from every single bike party. Public trash cans at party stops cannot support 1,000 bike partiers. Bring a plastic bag to pack trash.
- Don’t Get Smashed – Riding while inebriated poses a danger to yourself and others. Don’t ruin everybody else’s fun by overdoing it.
- Call out anybody failing to behave, and back up others who make those call-outs.

BRING
* Lights – Rides are at night. Best to be SEEN.
* Locks – Thieves can ride off on unattended bikes. Lock bikes together at the party stops.
* Layers – It’s all outdoors, and the temp typically drops a few degrees by night’s end.
* Water, refreshments, snacks, plastic bag – You’ll expend some energy, and need a way to pack your trash.
* Tube, patch kit, pump, tools – The ride is unsupported, please come prepared.
