Bike Party Kickstarter Surpasses Goal (But Wait, There’s More)

January 9th, 2013 | Categories: Programs | Post Comment

bikepartyOnly two weeks into their Kickstarter campaign, the Baltimore Bike Party has gone beyond its $2,500 goal to fund a new epic mobile sound trailer.    The current music trailer, faithfully hauled by Tim Barnett, has gone beyond it’s intended lifespan and is due for replacing.  With the bike party growing at an amazing rate, the music trailer was in need of such upgrades that replacement was the viable option.  Unless you are within 50 feet of the current music trailer, you likely won’t hear the tunes.

To prepare for the new trailer, Tim has worked to minimize any funding risk by already sourcing out all our components.  RacePace is ready to purchase the trailer, and local audio store PopTronics is ready to supply all the audio equipment.  All that is needed now is a welder to have the new trailer ready to go by April’s Bike Party!

Just because the $2,500 goal has been reached doesn’t mean the fundraising has stopped.  Baltimore Bike Party has, and always will be, a free event organized by volunteers.  Any money donated beyond the needs of the music trailer will be used for future Bike Party events.  These expenses include, but are not limited to, permits, posters/fliers, security, port-a-potties, food, DJs, and other entertainment.

If you act now with a $1 donation, you’ll get a Baltimore Bike Party sticker!  Donations of $25 or more, gets you an official Baltimore Bike Party t-shirt.  Donations of $100 or more gets you an official Baltimore Bike Party jersey, designed by Hill Killer Apparel.  T-shirts and jerseys are ONLY available through the Kickstarter campaign, so donate today!
