SF Bike Party Spins Through NOPA Tonight

SF Bike Party Spins Through NOPA on Hayes to the Panhandle

A party-on-wheels is coming to NOPA tonight, and you don't want to miss it. The San Francisco Bike Party is unlike any other bike ride in the city. It's hugely popular with a 100 or so cyclists, it starts mid-evening, makes stops along the way to, yes, party, and goes to great lengths to be safe and wise about rules-of-the road.

NOPA's own neighborhood bike group, NOPA VELO, has touted themes like Patty Hearst, Maria von Trapp, David Broderick with his duel-to-the-death, but we've never taken on something like ROBOTS AND CYBORGS. With this great weather and high spirits in town, this is the perfect Friday evening outing.

Here's the SFBP organizers spin on the 4th SFBP ride:

Join us for the 4th San Francisco Bike Party! We have an amazing route planned and with a break in the rain, it’s time to get out! Get your nerd on with this month’s theme of Robots and Cyborgs. The ride will take a leisurely tour of Golden Gate Park, the Sunset and Haight St, while rocking to mobile sound systems, and stopping to regroup and party along the way. We will have t-shirts available with a suggested donation price of $20 -- exact change appreciated!

How We Ride
  • Stay in the right lane
  • Stop at red lights
  • Leave No Trace
  • Ride predictably and in control
  • Roll past conflict
  • Ride Prepared
  • When in doubt, “Bike Party!!”
Your First Ride With Us?
We try to maintain a leisurely cruising speed. Routes are designed for a wide range of riders to keep pace. Though, with hundreds of riders on different types of bikes, some will find hills more challenging, or have flats and mechanical troubles. Before the ride, make sure your bicycle is in good working order. You should be comfortable riding San Francisco streets which may have traffic, train tracks, occasional steep hills, and other hazards. Bring friends and make new ones riding at your speed. Within your friends be prepared with a flat kit or to fix basic mechanical troubles. If you see someone in need, it’s good bike etiquette to help. That’s also a great way to make new friends in the biking community. Which is what the Bike Party is all about!
