About The Ride
What: We’re Baltimore Bike Party! We are a mass monthly ride for participants of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. We stay together, in a slow pace (usually ~10mph), following a different route every month, pre-selected by our volunteers and posted ahead of time. Find the latest event here!
Who: The Bike Party is a ride for all bikers! It is organized by a core group of volunteers. We are always looking for more help, if you interested in getting involved, contact us at info@baltimorebikeparty dot com!
When: The Bike Party is on the last Friday of every month. We meet at 6:30pm and wheels hit the pavement at 7:00. We usually ride until 8:45 or 9:00pm.
Where: The Bike Party meets at the St Mary’s Park in Seton Hill (600 N Paca St). This starting point does not change, but our end point varies from month to month.
Why: Because it’s awesome to ride your bike! It’s even MORE awesome to ride your bike with friends. Don’t have friends who ride? Come make some! We are all about building the cycling community!
How: We have a few simple rules that the ride follows. We have a group of dedicated volunteers who help lead and guide the ride along it’s way. We stay together and all have a good time!
