Biketoberfest 2018: A Bike Union Bash!
September 26, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$20 – $35
Biketoberfest, the Bike Union’s annual party and fundraising gala, returns this year to Hibernian Hall! At Biketoberfest, you’ll laugh, drink and dance with hundreds of fellow cyclists while learning about the Bike Union’s efforts and how you can get involved. You’ll also enjoy free food, beer, wine and cider with the price of admission, and get a chance to test your luck in a raffle full of great prizes, including a BRAND NEW BIKE and a weekend getaway in Burke, Vermont — a scenic Northeast Kingdom town home of the renowned Kingdom Trails mountain bike network.
Your ticket not only grants you access to the biggest bike party of the year, but supports the Bike Union’s mission to make everyday cycling better in Boston. That means helping us build off our recent victory securing separated bike lanes on the Longfellow Bridge (we’re fighting to improve connections on both sides of the bridge and working with MassDOT to design and implement the pilot for an even safer design this fall!); supporting our growing campaign to address the lack of a safe bike route on southern Mass Ave between Roxbury and Dorchester, and to fill gaps in the bike network throughout all of Boston, Cambridge, Somerville and beyond! Funds raised also ensure continuation and growth of our Bike to Market program, where we have fixed more than 5,000 bikes in neighborhoods without access to bike shops, and taught maintenance and repair skills to more than 1,500 people.
Tickets are $20 for members. For non-members, tickets are $35 and include a one-year membership with the Boston Cyclists Union. Even better, all guests get one complimentary raffle ticket! Come with your friends and leave with many more as you mix and mingle with the fine folks of Boston’s bike community. Grab your ticket TODAY and put on your dancing shoes. It’s time for Biketoberfest!
