The most unique feature of Bike Party is that it has different routes and dress code themes every month, such as “Where’s Wally”, Anime… etc. At the middle stop, you can see well-dressed riders interacting with each other. Everyone drinks and dances together, enjoying the amazing party!

The distance ranges from 15-30 miles. In addition to attracting more participants, shorter distances can also be managed easier, avoiding unexpectable accidents. We just have to admire the organizers for their well-planned management.

Even being held in the same area, the event route will be adjusted according to different months and themes, so that each ride will get a totally different experience!
