Joyride: Jump on your bike and experience a daydream.  All the world’s a stage and you are on a bike to watch it.  Motion, music and mingling will transform the way you see the city.  Its as easy as….well, it’s as easy as riding a bike. At the end you will be served a delicious picnic from a talented chef.  Meet 50 new people and who knows what will happen.

Joyride is a musical group bike ride and picnic created by theatre artist, Liz Sherman with a soundtrack designed by Duncan Bridgeman, co-creator of the double Grammy nominated film and album “1 Giant Leap” and soon to be released “What About Me”.

Fifty Joyriders will be both players and audience in an event that heightens fragments of ordinary city life into a virtually cinematic experience.  A shared soundtrack and a common route sets a rhythm and mood for a ride – an experience that  is both intimate and communal.

At it’s heart Joyride is about the freedom we feel riding a bike, the deep ways that music affects us and the power of that shared experience. 

Space is limited.  For each ride, ten spots will be reserved for those that are especially enthusiastic and write in to tell us . The other spaces are open to all first come, first served.

Joyride in other cities: Joyride is currently responding to invitations to create Joyrides in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, Switzerland, Norway and Tel Aviv. If you’d like to explore the possibility of a custom Joyride for your organization or in your city, please let us know. Write to us at
