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

This Bike Party made a specific effort to reach out and recruit Changwon locals through a poster campaigns at university campuses and popular public places. We also made all our information accessible in Korean.

이번 에서는 창원 지역 사람들과 함께 하기 위해 대학교 캠퍼스와 공공장소에 포스터를 붙이는 노력을 하였습니다. 그리고 모든 정보는 한국어로 있게 하였습니다.

We began at the start point at the Changwon Rotary and were greeted and interviewed by officials from City Hall.
우리는 창원 시청광장에서 만나서 서로 인사를 하고 시청 공무원 분들의 인터뷰에 응하였습니다.

Also, again, everyone looked FANTASTIC! Here are some pictures from the start point:

다시 말하지만, 모두 멋졌습니다! 여기에 모임 장소에서 찍은 사진들이 있습니다:

Bike Party then took to the streets and we began our ride!
길을 따라서 라이딩을 시작하였습니다!

We made it to the first meet up point.
번째 휴식처에 도착했습니다.  

Our ride continued as we made passage through Anmin Tunnel to Jinhae.

라이딩은 안민터널을 거쳐 진해까지 계속되었습니다.

Finally we made it to our finally destination along the sea at Jinhae-ru!!
마침내 우리는 바닷가에 위치한 우리의 목표지점인 진해루에 도착하였습니다!!

And... we also made it into the local newspaper!

그리고 우리 기사가 지역 신문 났습니다!

Great ride! See you next month!! BIKE PARTY!!!

최고의 라이딩이였습니다! 다음 달에 만나요!! !!!
