Why locals love it

Since 1992 Boulderites young and old (but mostly young) have gathered every Thursday night in spring, summer and fall to ride single-speed cruiser bikes through town, making friends with each along the way and spreading cheer by wishing everyone they cross a "Happy Thursday!"

Why you should visit it

This ride is honest wholesome fun of the active, playful sort that typifies the best aspects of living in Boulder. The pace is easy, and just by joining in you're essentially gauranteed to make a friend, or two, or ten. Each week has a theme, and though costumes aren't required they're certainly encouraged. You do have to bring your own bike.

Special tip

Cruisers and bikes of all sorts can be rented at many shops in town. This ride meets at 7:00 pm at Scott Carpenter Park and leaves promptly at 7:30.

I am hoping someone could tell me what time do the bikes typically go by 2nd and Pearl so I can watch them go by. Thank you!

I would like to find out who the despicable man was who ran into a 17 year old girl on the bike ride on June 6th & left her laying on the ground with abrasions to her face & bruises everywhere. Was he drinking? Does law enforcement monitor these rides? When she was finally able to get up, she locked her bike & left it & the lock was cut & it was stolen. I would hope that someone who witnessed this would turn this person into the police & also the person who then took advantage of the situation & stole her bike.
