The Tacky Tourist Ride

It’s summer in Surf City and there’s no better way to see it than by riding with some of the rowdy locals on their “bike party” tour of the town.

So put on your faux Hawaiian shirt or a “I ❤️ Santa Cruz” tee, strap on that fanny pack and visor, and cruise the Cruz with us. Take a little piece of Santa Cruz home for your friends with a novelty SCBP gift: “My buddy went to Santa Cruz Bike Party, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt”.

This month’s ride will be shorter than usual, to accommodate a most-special tourist attraction: a free concert on the beach by Blue Oyster Cult, starting at 8:30pm at the Boardwalk.
