They’re at it again: The sober party people of Vancouver’s Party4Health are holding their first free Bike Rave of the year at UBC on March 29.
If you’re wondering what a bike rave is, it’s basically a party on bicycle, complete with music, lights, dancing, crazy costumes, and plenty of socialization. The UBC Bike Rave will also include bike limbo, a bike fashion show, and something called “bike tornadoes.” But the organizers are also bendy on what kind of wheels you can bring; if you don’t have a bike you can still Rave on with a scooter, wheelchair, skateboard, or your own two feet.
Where this particular Bike Rave also veers off from the norm is that it’s totally booze and drug free. Organizers Party4Health are dedicated to spreading the gospel of good times without intoxicants.
“Bike Rave is an event that perfectly demonstrates the Party4Health
mission: creating parties so novel, so exhilarating, and so inclusive that there’s no need
for drugs and alcohol to have a good time. You’re all the fuel you need,” explain organizers.
Party4Health also happens to be the group behind Vancouver’s New Year’s Eve “Party Train” SkyTrain ride and UBC’s all-day free roaming “Party Safari” event.
If a sober Bike Rave is your kind of fun, you’ll need to register online to be able to participate.
