Phoenix Bike Party!!
Second Saturday of every month
July Bike Party is on July 14th!!!
Meet at 7:30, we ride at 8:00!
July 14th's theme: Beach Blanket Bingo!
It's going to be plenty warm out, so let's all dress like we're going to the beach.
Get your floaty toys, board shorts, whatever is comfortable for you to wear in hot weather.
Start location: M.O. Best Mini Park, next to Carly's on Roosevelt/2nd St.
Look and listen for the blinky bikes with speakers playing music.
You can get there via Metro Light Rail (only $2 per ride and you can bring your bike with you).
Nearest Light Rail stop: Roosevelt St.
Here's the route!!!!
Let me introduce you all to my new friend Bike Party!
This is a monthly event to get your cycling legs stretched out and your dancing shoes broken in and to show off your cool sound bike and lighting!
While this event is family-friendly, it *does* go late into the night and there are always dangers while riding at night.
The plan for the rides:
We'll start each ride at 8PM at a location near a Light Rail stop. We'll ride a few miles while listening to some sweet tunes. We'll stop at a park or a vacant lot and dance for thirty to forty-five minutes. Then we ride a few miles to a new location and dance some more. Ride again, dance again. The last dance location will be located within a few minutes ride to a Light Rail stop. You can take your bike on the Light Rail back to where you started or parked.
THIS IS NOT A BAR CRAWL! Phoenix Bike Party will *NOT* be stopping at any commercial establishments. We will not stop at any bars or restaurants. Our paths will likely go by some convenience stores where you can run in and grab something to drink if your thirsty.
The current month's Phoenix Bike Party theme will be posted via Twitter, Instagram, and azcacophony.org as soon as we think of one.
Start location and ride routes will be posted via Twitter, Instagram, and azcacophony.org 24 hours before the event (that means posted on Friday night).
Bike Party will always begin and end at a location convenient to the Phoenix Metro Light Rail.
