Bike Party Indy is an informal collective of individuals who meet once a month, starting off at the City Market downtown. From there, they ride in the evening, usually as a group. If someone gets left behind, they stop. The group practices safe cycling techniques, and is relaxed and welcoming to anyone who wants to join. Last Friday, I attended my first ever bike party, which happened to be their 2nd anniversary meeting. It won’t be my last:
I loved the sense of camaraderie with this group. This wasn’t a race, but a leisurely ride. We explored a relatively large area from Windsor Park to Garfield Park, but it was done at such a pace that it almost seemed like we were floating through the city.Â Thanks for the organizers for creating this event, and I’m pleased at how well attended it was.
