Bike Shop Partaaaaaay!

We're having a throw-down party at Hub Bicycle Co  & fueled by Aeronaut Brewing Co to raise the roof and some money to send Team Bike Union on their epic Climate Ride journey from Maine to Boston. Bring your dancing shoes because the Boston Bike Party music trailer will be rockin' the house. (Remember the January Bike Party?... yeah, pretty much THAT).  We're doing Eventbrite to manage attendance because this will sell out quick.  

Your $8 entry ticket gets you 1 drink OR 5 raffle tickets. Choice is yours to make at the door.  Bring extra cash to purchase raffle tickets. 

Here is the Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook....

Boston Cyclists Union's 5th Annual Spring Kickoff Party

April 30, 2015 - 4:10pm

Greater Boston Cycling/Outdoor Fitness Group

It's time to celebrate!

Come hear about all the incredible work the Bike Union has done, meet tons of awesome bike people, and dance the night away!  The momentum is with us, so let's drink to it! 

Order tickets via Eventbrite and check our Facebook Event page to see who's coming (and invite your friends).

This event is all-ages (ID required for beer & wine). 
To gain entry you simply have to join the Union, and be a member of the organization that is changing not just Boston, but setting examples for all of New England. Lucky for you, joining up is a very easy to do. You can join at the door, online at bostoncyclistsunion.org, or by buying a ticket here on Eventbrite

This event may sell out! Even if you are already a member, tickets are recommended. The hall only holds 350 of the friendliest people in Boston—our members :) 
PLUS - You could win a Yuba Boda Boda Cargo Bicycle if you join between April 15 and May 17! 

FOOD & DRINK! Cambridge Brewing Co. is donating three of their finest kegs! Wine will also be available! El Pelon, bGood, and the Chicken & Rice Guys are going to kick down massive amounts of the best food you ever tasted!

RAFFLE! We're raffling off a folding bike from local builder Montague Bikes. A $750 Gift Certificate at Urban Adventours (They carry Birria, Kona, Giant and Surly bikes!) A Bailey Works Bag,  A reflective paint job for your bike from Hub Powderworks. And more! 

DJ Trizlam and DJ Dudley will regale you with the best music from around the world and the best part: 300 of your favorite people will be there!!!!


What we've been up to:
The sun's warmth is back in Boston, we've successfully turned the City of Boston's inadequate bike lane on Comm Ave into a plan for what will likely be the country's best cycletrack, and the mayor has also announced Vision Zero—with the Bike Union sitting on the new task force with Walk Boston and a host of city agencies. 


Over on the state side of things, we've worked with MassDOT on several cycletracks over the years, including recently Comm Ave and Gateway East in Brookline (Route 9), and now they're creating their own book of cycletrack guidelines! And at the cash-strapped DCR, we've managed to spark design processes for cycletracks on the Arborway and Morrissey Blvd, and so the entire Parkway system through a new committee created through the #WinterBiker campaign and a new study of the Parkways. This may even be the beginning of the end of rotaries in the region! 


A huge thank you to our sponsors!
