Flock of Cycles, Pittsburgh Bike Party – Bike Fest extravaganza. Invite your friends, bring your bike, and bring some food. We will bring the fun. We will ride through the city and end with a picnic.
Helmets and lights are a must.
–What is a Bike Party?–
A Bike Party is a welcoming, family-friendly, all-inclusive, FREE event consisting of a leisurely-paced bicycle ride (complete with music and mechanical support) and ending with a post-ride party.
The group pedals through the city at a slow, welcoming pace appropriate for riders of all ages and capabilities. You get a chance to make new friends, learn new routes, and have fun on your bike!
We’ll meet at Dippy the Dino (on Forbes Ave in Oakland, in front of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, across from the Cathedral of Learning).
We’ll meet at 6pm and leave at 6:30pm.
(Won’t be off work in time? We’ll post the route later so that you can catch up with us along the way.)
Helmets. Lights. A bike to put those lights on. And all your friends!
–What happens in the case of rain/snow/zombie apocalypse?–
On the afternoon of the ride, we’ll decide whether conditions are safe enough to ride. Look for updates here, on Twitter, and on our website a couple of hours before the start of the ride if things are looking sketchy.
i have a crappy handpump, but there’s also a fixit station, which has a floor pump w/ gauge, on Forbes Ave near Bouquet, behind the Pitt Police kiosk under the ped bridge, about two blocks from the Flock start.
