It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking In the dark
Under the moonlight you see a bike that almost stops Your heart
You try to scream (Bike Party!), but terror takes the sound before You make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes, You’re paralyzed

‘Cause this is thriller, THRILLER RIDE!
Friday the 13th, 7pm at the Bike Church!

…Darkness falls across the land
The 7pm hour is close at hand
Creatures ride in search of jams
To cruise through y’all’s neighborhood!

What?!?
Santa Cruz Bike Party is a mobile party for riders of all ages, experience levels, and types to meet, ride, and play together in the streets. Rides are 7-10 miles long with music and dance breaks along the way. Rides move at a relatively slow pace and no one is left behind. Each ride has a theme and riders are encouraged to wear costumes or decorate their bikes to fit the theme.
