Parisian duo Daft Punk is back in my playlists with the release of the first single from their highly anticipated new album “Random Access Memories.” Now the whole album doesn’t drop until May 21, but DC Bike Party is given us a little something to help us wait in the shape of a robot-themed Daft Punk bike party. This is pretty much just (techno) music to my (French) ears!

The details? The DC Bike Ride Robot Ride will take place May 8 and depart, like most other DC Bike Rides, from the middle of Dupont Circle at 8 pm. Riders are encouraged to channel Tron (Daft Punk composed the score for that soundtrack), grab some reflective tape, glow in the dark gear and some DIY robot helmets to bike along a mobile DJ in a pedicab, who will play a mix of Daft Punk hits, of course.

For those who just want to watch, the eight-mile course will be released 24 hours in advance. Or you can head to The Brixton for the after party and stay up all night for good fun, stay up all night to get lucky.
