Every four years, the world comes together for the Olympic Winter Games, and Friday February 9th we invite you to skip the opening ceremonies in Pyeongchang, and instead join us for the Boston Bike Party Winter Games.
There will be no BBP group ride this month. Instead, we're doing something different... Winter Games. READ ON!
Wear your nations colors, or not, and compete in SIX unique bicycle games that anyone can do, but takes a true competitor to master. The games are designed for fun, but they will be scored / judged.
7:00pm - Gather at North Point Park (On the circle shaped island)
7:30pm - OPENING CEREMONIES (Foot Down Derby)
7:40pm - WINTER GAMES! (Game descriptions below)
We'll end when it ends, and then head over to Flat Top Johnny's for celebratory beers and announce winners.
The Games will be "carnival style". You'll receive a map of the events and a scorecard to keep track of your results. Bring your scorecard to Flat Top's at the end for lamination into an official BBP spoke card.
