Bike Party Like the '90s
Baltimore Bike Party celebrates all things '90s with tonight's monthly fun ride.

No, it's not too soon. The '90s were the formative years for today's 20-somethings and those in their early 30s—the so-called Millennial Generation that makes up the bulk of Baltimore Bike Party riders every month.
So dress up as one of those annoying Saved By the Bell kids, or put together a more creative throwback-costume, and pedal over to St. Mary's Park at 600 N. Paca St. tonight for the last-Friday-of-every-month recreational ride. (Btw, did you see the Lifetime network is putting together a Saved By the Bell movie? Can someone please stop this?)
Bicyclists start gathering at 6:30 p.m. and take off promptly at 7 p.m.
The traditional Bike Party after-party is slated for the Lexington Market lot, with loads of market's vendors hawking their foodstuffs, including Fraidley's and their crab cakes, plus live music and dancing. The after-after party moves to either nearby Alewife Baltimore or the Pratt Street Ale House.
Bonus: This month's ride includes Hawaiian shaved ice from Hula Honey's at the halfway point rest stop.
