Bike Rave! August 17th at Christie Pits @ 8:30 PM

  • Bike rave is a D.I.Y. event that combines glow lights and synched music while riding through the streets of Toronto from dance destination to dance destination. We want to see boomboxes, costumes, glow sticks galore!

    Here is the premise:

    1) Cover your bike with lights! Be creative; you can include strobes lighting and glow sticks or what ever else lights up your bike.

    2) Download the master playlist:
    3) Mount portable speakers to your bike.
    4) Meet us at Christie pits at 8:30pm August 17th 2012.
    5) At 9:00pm everyone with a sound system will press play on their mp3 devices at the same time.
    6) We’ll ride critical mass style through the city.
    7) Tada! BIKE RAVE!!!————————–————————–If you are late we have designated meeting spots where we will be stopping to dance:

    9:15 – 9:45pm – Southeast corner of Trinity Bellwoods park
    10:00-10:15pm – Coronation Park at Lakeshore and Strachan
    10:30-11:15pm – The playground at High Park
    11:30 – Bonfire at semi-secret location

    If you get split up from the group at any point, meet us at one of these spots!

    Check out the route map (final destination excluded):


    Some things to keep in mind:
    *Ride safe!! Be conscious of drivers and other riders. Give other bike ravers lots of room on the roads and bike paths.

    *Make sure you have lights and a bell and all that legal jazz.

    *Don’t be an asshole on the road. If you find yourself in a confrontation with a driver or police officer, be friendly and smile. Bike ravers are lovers, not fighters.

    *Standard disclaimer: Please note that Bike Pirates does not condone the use of illicit substances and/or alcohol while riding a bike.

    *Lights, soundsystem, party attitude

    *Spare tubes and patch kit in case of flats

    *Lots of water


    *All your friends


    Toronto Bike Rave is not associated with Vancouver Bike Rave, however we want to acknowledge the awesome organizers who created the original event out west. Want to see how awesome Vancouver Bike Rave is? Check out the video:
