Bike Month Bash 2016
Kick off summer and celebrate the end of Bike Month with BikeSD at the Lafayette Hotel with a massive pool party following an easy townie ride. The annual Bike Month Bash will take place on June 4th, 2016, rain or shine, starting and finishing once again at The Lafayette Hotel in North Park, San Diego. Riders will have the opportunity to enjoy the complete Lafayette Hotel experience. The 15-mile ride will take riders through the historic neighborhoods of North Park, Hillcrest, Normal Heights & City Heights. Register online through June 2nd.
Wanna know why you should attend? Here is a personal story from member/volunteer Aire H. Thank you Aire for sharing your experience from last year’s ride.
When I first saw BikeSD’s Bike Month Bash last year, my first thought was, “Sign me up!” I was looking for a way to meet people who shared my interests and a fifteen-mile bike ride with a pool party afterwards seemed like the perfect opportunity to make some friends. So, I decided to volunteer for Bike Bash 2015. On the ride, I got to follow up with other riders, asking them about their experience riding bikes and riding in San Diego. Many were riding bikes for the first time in years and some had come with their friends from as far away as LA, while others like me had come in the hopes of making friends. We had time to talk and get to know each other without working too hard. Afterwards, the group enjoyed amazing drinks and food poolside at the Lafayette Hotel and while I definitely left with some new friends, I also left with an understanding of the need for bike lanes—not every cyclist gets to ride with 80 friends or can take the lane to stay safe.
