At this monthly ride starting at Union Square, cyclists can take back the streets—this time in costume. Afterward, head to Surreal Estate for a fund-raising dance party, with music by the Rude Mechanical Orchestra, an activist marching band that covers Le Tigre and Beyoncé. Food is provided by the organization’s “diving team” (as in, Dumpster diving). Yum.

Time: 7 p.m. (ride), 8 p.m. (party).
Price: Free to ride, party admission is $9.99.
