About the ride:

Hey hepcats, quit your caterwauling – it’s time for the Tour de Cat! What’s that? Well, it’s a cat-themed Bike Party in honor of Fat Tire Tour de Fatcoming to Santa Cruz. So, don some cat-sual wear, slick those whiskers, and prowl on down for a night on bikes on the town!

As always, Bike Party is the cat’s pajamas: catagorically the coolest combo of a swinging themed shindig and a costumed community bike ride. Each one involves a rolling, rolicking mobile party, complete with a cattywampus route about town, on-bike soundsystems, dance breaks, and made even more fabulous by your creativity. What’s more, we’ll have a cat-stume contest, complete with catwalk for all of you feline fashionistas, with prizes galore.

The ride starts at 7:03 PM (time for a catnap?), meeting at the Bike Church (703 Pacific Ave.) The weather is bound to be purr-fect, but this is coastal CA, so bring layers.

Route will be posted before ride. Check back here.

Fat Tire Presents: Tour de Fat Santa Cruz w/ Wilderado is the next day, and it is benefiting our friends at Bike Santa Cruz County, so buy your tickets! They are a screaming deal.
