What is Bike Prom anyway?

What is Bike Prom anyway?
Bike Prom is this Friday, but what is Bike Prom anyway? Are people supposed to be dancing on their bikes? Is there some sort of parade that leads to the dance? Do we have to bring a date? What’s the benefit of signing up early? What’s the dance going to be like? What to wear? Feeling confused? Let me clear things up for you!

Friday, May 16, 6-10pm
Ride: Meet at Kiwanis Park at 6:00pm, FREE
Dance: Recreation Center, 8-10pm | $5 Advanced Purchase

The Ride
What better way to celebrate National Bike Week, than biking to prom this Friday night?! All tandems, cruisers, and unicycles are welcome! The ride will begin at 6 pm and consist of a ride through iconic parts of Provo, starting at Kiwani’s Park and ending at the Recreation Center (about 6 miles). The ride is open to all ages! Here’s a route to review and enjoy before Friday.

The ride will be guided by pace setters who will help lead and follow the group. If you’re worried about the length of the ride, don’t worry we seek to accommodate all who participate. Just come enjoy the pumping music as we cruise through town!

If you get a flat on the ride, don’t worry, Swim-Bike-Run will be there to solve any street problems. If you get tired or need to opt out of the ride, just checkout with one of the ride guides. You can head home or go straight to the dance. 

Don’t have a bike?
Not to worry, Outdoors Unlimited is offering a 15% discount off of ALL bike rentals for this event. Call or visit their store to take advantage of this great offer!
The Dance
The dance will take place at the Provo Recreation Center, located at 320 W 500 N. As riders arrive, valet bike parking will be available for all bikes. You may drive to the dance without participating in the ride if you desire. The dance is for ages 16 and older, but Kids Club will be available for ages 4-12 during the event at no additional cost (see details below). 
What to Wear?
We’re leaving it up to you! We of course encourage your finest prom attire, but if you must sport the bike shorts or other attire, please do.

Photo booth
We know you will be dressed in your best, so don’t worry if you forget your camera. You’ll get to pose on our tandem bike for a personal photo shoot. We will not only capture some great photos of you & your date but will print free photos for you to take home at the end of the night! Here’s a preview of some great props that will be available!

Prepare to be blown away with some hip track mixes done by Provo’s DJ KiDMACHiNE. We promise your feet will be unable to resist the urge to dance all night long. Want a sample? Check out some of his work at https://soundcloud.com/kidmachine

Mocktails & Hors d’oeuvres
Enjoy a FREE drink on us! Zero Proof Mocktails will be mixing drinks at Bike Prom. Everyone at the dance will get one free mocktail of their choice. Additional drinks will be available for purchase. We’ll also have a variety of hors d’oeuvres for you enjoyment. Graze along the refreshments to enjoy tiny hamburgers, berry skewers, and more sweet and savory dining.

Kids Club (Age 4-12)
For no additional cost, child care will be provided during the dance. Your kids will enjoy a movie as well as various activities, while you dance the night away next door. Child care will be available from 7:30-10pm for ages 4-12. It will be managed by the Recreation Center’s excellent and certified child watch staff. We encourage you to bring your kids on the ride and then drop them off at Kids Club during the dance.
