It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine! Join us for a celebration of the New Year and possibly a New Age.

The word apocalypse literally means “an uncovering”: a discolsure of knowledge or revelation. So apocalypse can mean everything from fire and brimstone or nuclear winter to the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, or even a Scandavian cello quartet playing the songs of Metallica (http://www.apocalyptica.com/en/).

It seems appropriate that our first Bike Party of 2017 falls on Friday the 13th, a day considered by some to be ominous, but for others to be lucky. Likewise we encourage you to come with a costume reflecting your association of apocalypse, be it the grim struggle for survival of Mad Max, a chaotic zombie uprising, or a dawning messianic era of peace and harmony.
