Tue Mar 18 2014Pi(e) Day Pajama Ride with the Santa Cruz Bike Party
Tue Mar 18 2014Festive, Friendly Group Bicycle Rides in Santa Cruz Part of Larger Movement
This month's Bike Party theme in Santa Cruz was pie and pajamas. A colorful group gathered for pie at the Bike Church and then rode off into the sunset together on March 14 for Pi Day (3.14). Unlike the world-famous critical-mass bicycle rides, which are more political in focus and sometimes confrontational, Bike Party aims for a festive and friendly ride. The Santa Cruz Bike Party is gaining popularity and part of a larger movement, with the San José Bike Party being the most famous.
There were quite a few onesies and some great patterned pajamas worn. During the ride, there were fun lights, the Happening Couch that plays music provided free rides to people along the way, and the group stopped off for dance parties. After heading toward the San Lorenzo River and then riding along Ocean, the Bike Party made its way to the Westside and stopped off for beers at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery. The event was fun and a lot of people participated, which created a great opportunity to ride the streets with fellow bike-loving, pie-eating, pajama-wearing community members and friends!
Santa Cruz Bike Party happens every second Friday, usually around 7 pm.
