This Friday Will Be the First Friday of the Month, So It’ll be Time for the SF Bike Party! Like Critical Mass, But Not Illegal

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Sfist has all the deets of the forthcoming debut of the San Francisco Bike Party ride.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking, “what about criminal liability for the organizers?” But the thing is that the organizers are saying that participants need to stay to the right (more or less) and stop for red lights. That should serve to keep the ringleaders out of the hoosegow.

But what about civil liability? Well, that’s unlimited, baby, the sky’s the limit on that score. (I’d want a seven-figure liability policy in place before I’d start organizing huge bike parties, myself.)

Anyway:

TIME: FRIDAY JAN 7 – 7.30PM GATHER – 8PM ROLL
START: GIANTS STADIUM – WILLIE MAYS GATE
END: CIVIC CENTER QUAD — NEAR BART
PARTY THEME: BIRTHDAY PARTY!!

San Francisco Bike Party rolls out the new year in style, our
inaugural ride is a rockin birthday party for the whole city! The
ride will take a leisurely tour of some popular areas of the city
along with our mobile sound systems. We’ll stop and party at 3
well-known spots along the ride. You are welcome to join or leave the
ride at any intermediate spot – the route will be posted the week of
the ride. If you want to volunteer to help with the ride, come early
and we’ll show you what to do.
