Bike Rave 2014

Bike Rave is a D.I.Y. event that combines lights with synched music while riding through the streets of Toronto from dance destination to dance destination.

This is Bike Pirates third year hosting the event, and we want it to be bigger and better this year!!

More info on Bike Pirates here: http://bikepirates.com/

Here is the premise:

Everyone covers their bike with lights, glow sticks, streamers, colour, fuzz etc. and meets at the first meeting location. We will make a playlist, which will be available for download a week before the event. At the meeting location, everyone with a sound system will press play at the same time, and then we ride critical mass style through the city. VOILA! Bike Rave.

Check out what happened last year:

Some Bike Raving tips from the pros:

Ride safe!! Be conscious of drivers and other riders. Give other bike ravers lots of room on the roads and bike paths

Stay with the group. Bike Rave is not a race- if you are too far ahead and we make a turn we will not be sending out a search party

Make sure you have lights and a bell and all that legal jazz

Dont be an asshole on the road. If you find yourself in a confrontation with a driver or police officer, be friendly and smile. Bike ravers are lovers, not fighters

LEAVE NO TRACE. There was a lot of mess left by bike ravers last year, and we want this year to as clean as can be! Throw out your trash or bring it with you to a place where you can

Standard disclaimer: Please note that Bike Pirates does not condone the use of illicit substances and/or alcohol while riding a bike

THINGS TO BRING:

Lights, soundsystem, party attitude

Spare tubes and patch kit in case of flats

Lots of water

Snacks

All your friends
