There’s a story…
Of two moto ladies… where this started because we were tired of the divide in groups and events—especially for women riders. (We were also over riding far outside our own city for bike nights.) B3 co-founders @whiskyeye and @cloobird had no good reason to take on the mammoth task of consecutive event planning, except that we felt a need for space where our city's fragmented moto groups can all come hang together as a community. Thus B3 was born and exploded.

It doesn’t matter what you ride, as long as you do.
The thing we love about motos is, it doesn't matter who you are; once you realize someone rides, you’re connected. B3 is meant to be a place to just hang and chat about our shared passion, make new friends and realize that men, women, whomever, all make up this community and should support each other. All of us need to turn the tide and make motos something everyone feels welcome to enjoy.
All bikes, all types, & even for those who might *want* to ride, or simply love to be around bikes. We wanted to open a space for folks to just show up, don't be a dick and have a rad time.
The funny thing was, as all rad things, it took on a life of its own.
The first B3 bike night started with 50 odd people —more than we expected. By the third one, we were up to 125… the final, 275. It got INSANE with the support, the enthusiasm; it was evident it was something our community needed. Boston is a huge mix of people —of course that means riders too. This is the most eclectic night you’ll ever attend and you’ll want to come back. Actually, don’t ask us, ask everyone else.
Craft. Community. Culture.
A community means a place to see friends and make new ones. It’s a place to get advice, learn new skills, show off your stuff and maybe buy some art. It’s a feeling that you’ve found a place where you belong. Not because you’re surrounded by people just like you, but because you aren’t and you belong anyway. Because differing views on what’s cool enriches our experiences, exposes us to new ideas, and generates enthusiastic conversations.
