What is Bike Party?

Changwon Bike Party is a group bike ride open to any and all bike riders and Nubija subscribers. It happens the 2nd Saturday of every month. Every Bike Party has a different starting point and a different route and is typically around 12-20 KM. Also every ride has a costumed theme! Bike Party is about engaging with your biking and local community. Bike Party allows us to explore and engage with neighborhoods and even cities that we might not explore or engage with otherwise. Bike Party is first and foremost a PARTY! There is music, and costumes and all kinds of celebrating!! So dress up and get on your bikes and ride!!!

Here is a video I made of what a bike party looks like: East Bay Bike Party

You have some options. MILD and SPICY

MILD:  a one-way trip that ends at Jinhae-Ru. 12.3 km (about 7.5 miles)

Flag Marker #5 on the Map indicates our 1st stop at "The Columns" @ Geongdan-ro and Seoungju-ro. At Bike Party pace it takes roughly 30-40 minutes to get to there. There is a GS25 across the street and Nubija stalls. We will hang out at the columns for about 20-30ish minutes. We then proceed through the bike corridor through Anmin Tunnel (that little bubble that says "17") and down into Jinhae to Jinhae-ru. There is a CU (aka. Family Mart) right next to Jinhae-ru. 

Group Stop 1 @ the Columns at Geongdan-ro & Seungju-ro
Time it takes to get there: approx. 30-40 min

Group stop 2 @ Jinhae-Ru
Time it takes from Group Stop 1: approx 25- 30 min

This might be the end of your night. Dock your Nubija, and (try to) get a cab...... 
unless you're feeling SPICY

(A note recently discovered about Jinhae-ru: finding a cab can be difficult. Not impossible, but just letting you know ahead of time)

SPICYa round-trip ride that ends back at Fountain Park with an extra stop on the way back. 23.5 km (14.5 miles)

For those who want to continue spicing up their night, we ride back through the tunnel following a mostly similar route backtracking except for making a 3rd Group Stop at the Changwon City Rose Garden @ Changwon-daero & Jeoungdong-ru (at Flag Post #2 on the map). From there we hang out 20 or 30 minutes until making the quick 10 minute ride back to Fountain Park feeling great after biking close to 15 miles on a Friday night in silly clothes.

Group Stop 3 @ Changwon City Rose Garden
Time it takes from Group Stop 2: approx. 40 min.

End Point @ Fountain Park
Time it takes from Group Stop 3: approx 10 min
