It’s almost your big day, and you have been thinking about a unique way to celebrate with friends and family. Then boom! An outdoor bike riding party comes to mind, and you like the idea. However, you need to put some things in place before you can have the best bike-riding party. Below are the top tips to help you host an interesting bike-riding birthday party.
Choose a Safe Location
A safe and suitable route is everything for a bike-riding birthday party. Think about the best location for your party, maybe a park, a field, or a trail. Do not go about choosing a hilly or rocky location to avoid accidents. You do not want somebody spraining their leg or breaking a bone, right? You should also consider the age and ability level of participants while choosing a location. If the party is for kids, an outdoor park is more suitable. If your participants are adults, then a field would be more appropriate.
Get all Necessary Party Supplies
It’s a party, and definitely, you will need party supplies like tables, chairs, tents, picnic mats, picnic baskets, and dishes for the food. Instead of bringing plates and cups from home, why not use single-use plastic tableware for the occasion? They are more suitable for outdoor activities like your bike riding birthday party because they save you the stress of washing. Moreover, the location is not your home, so there might not be a place to wash dishes. Again, you want to come to the location with little or no load, and stainless or glass dishes might not avail you of this opportunity.
Put Protective Measures in Place
Accidents do not tell you before they happen so it is always better to prepare in case of any. Make sure to get any safety gear you are your attendees may need, including a first-aid kit. Also, make sure to remind participants to come with fitting helmets; you can also get some extra ones in case someone does not have one. Ensure you also provide a basic bike safety lecture before the ride while also including signals and road regulations.
Consider Hiring a Professional Bike Coach
It is possible that you just love the idea of a bike-riding birthday party but do not know the first thing about bikes. If this is the case, try hiring a professional bike coach who will guide the ride and provide instructions to all participants. This way, everybody can learn new things and enjoy themselves in the process. This will enable your attendees to have a memorable party to reminisce on thereafter.
Get Extra Bikes
It’s possible that not every attendee will have a bike. Moreover, it is your party, and you came up with this great idea. You can decide to rent extra bikes and even helmets in case some attendees do not have their own. After all, where is the fun of being left out in a bike riding party because you do not own a bike? The ideal thing is to include everyone in the games.
Choose a Meeting Point
It’s a nice idea to choose a meeting point, whether at the venue of the party or somewhere around. This will help to avoid mix-ups and confusion. Also, fix a stipulated time for the party so that some attendees do not arrive when the party is almost over and miss out on all the fun.
Have a Backup Plan
It might just start raining heavily on the morning of your party. Plans ruined? Not necessarily! You should have a backup plan, especially for the venue of your bike riding party, probably a local indoor cycling studio or any nearby indoor location that is still suitable for such an occasion. This will enable you to go on with all activities, even in bad weather.
A bike riding party can be a memorable experience for friends and family if it is well thought-out, well planned, and there are no accidents. Therefore, you, as the organizer, should make the safety of your attendees a top priority. Also, make sure to tie all loose ends before D-Day, so you do not look all stressed out in your birthday pictures and videos.
