Some said it was lunacy to have a swoony Bike Party before love day, under a full moon, but we here at SCBP are moon lovers, and luna-fanatics. So come join us for a lunar trip, cycling to sweet tunes and the cycles of the moon. Along the way, we will build co-moon-ity, moonwalk, howl at the man in the moon, and eat some moon pies.
In our beach town, the sun gets a lot of love, and holds the center stage for a number of our favorite activities, so we thought we would direct the spotlight on earth’s sister sphere for this ride. The moon does a lot for us, particularly in Santa Cruz – we ride her tides, go on night hikes under her light, and generally enjoy gazing at her radiant face. Some say life on earth might not have evolved without our stalwart satellite!
Here are some COSTUME IDEAS: Moon boots, disco balls, antennae, astronaut gear, silver sparkles, crescents, cows (over the moon!), hearts, and whatever helps you express your swoony loony moony you. As always @ Bike Party, costumes are encouraged, but not required.
Tonight is the right night to embrace the full moon, with love by your side, and those sweet moon crooners. Sweeping through streets with the moon hanging low. A romantic adventure for more love to grow. Pedal your way into the heart that you seek and let “BIKE PARTY!” be the words that you speak!
