"Hey Bike Party, can we go thrift shopping?"

Get your bicycle and your best costume ready and join Bike Walk Macon on Thursday, September 13th for Macon Bike Party's Re-Cycle Ride! 

Macon Bike Party is a free, slow-paced community bicycle ride for people of all ages and skills levels. Come enjoy our great city and its neighborhoods from a unique perspective. 

Show up at 6 pm at Poplar Street Park (Next to Just Tap'd on Poplar St, between 1st and 2nd Street) dressed in your wildest, best/worst thrift shop finds. Remember to also bring bike lights and a helmet. Wheels hit the street at 7 pm. The route will feature 2 pit stops and end back at Poplar Street Park by 9 pm. A map of the complete route will be available 24 hours before the ride. Riders are welcome to join or depart the group at any point.

For our first ride, we're partnering with Wear. Your dollar makes change., a thrift store in Downtown Macon whose profits benefit Daybreak - A Project of Depaul USA, and Re-Cycle Macon, a Centenary Community Ministries Inc. program that gets bicycles to under-resourced individuals in need of dependable transportation. Here's how you can support them:
- Purchase your second hand best from WEAR and bring your receipt to the ride to receive a free bicycle bell.
- Re-Cycle Macon will be on site if you'd like to bring a bicycle to donate to their program. 

Help us bring the party by adding fun lights to your bicycle and contributing a tune or two (but don't get crazy) to the collaborative Spotify playlist - https://spoti.fi/2LagktG.

Macon Bike Party would not be possible without the generous support of the Downtown Challenge Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.
