What has New Haven Bike Party been up to for the last year, you may ask? A lot!
NHBP’s founder, Coby has moved across the country, and in his place, a group of 5 up and coming, enthusiastic organizers have joined together to co-organize New Haven Bike Party.
Over the last 10 months, we’ve helped organize:
The Red, White & Blue Bash:
An Independence Day inspired ride around town, from the New Haven Green to City Point to the Farmington Canal trail.
We wrapped up the ride at the illustrious Bradley Street Bike Co-op for a Bike Party Birthday Party/Farewell Bash for Coby. We had chips, cake, and even a Mayoral proclamation!
Surf’s Up Ride
A radical ride that spanned multiple bridges, from the Green to Fairhaven and back to chillax at Ashley’s Ice Cream!
Nightmare on Elm Street
And a bunch of amazing winter rides!
We are excited to be a part of New Haven Bike Party, and hope you join us for our next ride!!!
THANK YOU to the 30+ Bike Party Riders! We gathered 60 pairs of socks just before Thanksgiving for Columbus House
Thank you to Town Pizza for offering a discount with sock donations!
New Haven Bike Party is truly proud to be a part of New Haven, creating community, and doing good for New Haven.
Then we ride:
Rest stop 1: Quinnipiac River Park, Fair Haven, New Haven
Then we continued our ride
Rest Stop 2: East Shore Park
Then we rode back to Town Pizza to eat pizza. Thank you again to Town Pizza for their collaboration in helping Columbia House, buy offering a discount to Bike Partyers that donated socks.
