rolling through Southie

A nationwide movement called Bike Party is rolling across the nation on two wheels and Tuesday, May 28th the party will be rolling through Southie.

Be on the look out for a parade of  funky bikes, Hubway riders, music trailers, and a sea of blinking lights.   Wanna join in the fun?  Meet at Dewey Square (outside south station)
at 7:30pm and the party rolls at 8pm.  Riders of all levels are welcome.

If you seem them, make sure to give them a big Southie welcome and cheer them on!

Note:
Bike Party intentionally will begin the ride well after rush hour to minimize impact on other road users. They will be following the rules of the road a few Boston police officer will be
riding with the party for added safety. People in Seaport neighborhood will see them around 8:15pm.  The route will then take the party to Castle Island and over Broadway around 9pm.  Ride will end near the Hynes Convention Center.

    I was held up on East Broadway last night as they let this “Bike Parade” travel in the middle of the road towards West Broadway. Some bikes had lights on them some did not, some bikers had helmets on some did not.

    That I noticed there were 2 Boston Police Bicycle units, 2 Boston Police motorcycles, 3 Boston Police cruisers and a State Police cruiser. I’m going to guess that all 8 of these guys received 4 hours of detail pay (good for them).

    When will people realize Boston is not a bikers city. Despite the police presence these people are lucky they weren’t hit riding down the middle of Broadway at 830 in pitch black.
