    Think Project Runway and try to craft something with materials such as newspaper, caution tape, bubble wrap, tinfoil, shower curtains, cardboard boxes, bedsheets, card decks, magazines, etc.


    It's not FASHION, it's TRASHION!!!

  • What is Cambridge Bike Party


    How it ALL started


    CBP Founder, Patricia Lambert, grew up steeped in the bike party culture of the Bay Area, California. There, she attended San Francisco Bike Party and East Bay Bike Party. After moving from America to England she transitioned from party guest to party leader by launching Cambridge Bike Party.


    "I imported bike party to Cambridge because it's a bike-friendly city, and there's nothing else like it here. This gives you a great alternative to pub life. You can get outside, disconnect from everything, and simply enjoy the moment. On a ride, you feel like you're living in your own personal music video!" - Patricia

  • CBP Mission

    Experience your city in a new way. Experience the bliss of bike party. Enjoy the alternate party space we mutually create as we ride together in the streets.


    Once you attend a ride, you'll appreciate all that bike party has to offer. Most guests instantly want to return! We hope you become a regular.


    Join us and experience the fun of bike party!
