There were ghosts, skeletons, glowing pumpkins, and ninjas — and they were all riding bikes.

Hundreds people decked out in Halloween garb converged at Copley Square Saturday night to take part in the 16th annual Boston Halloween Bike Ride.

The roughly nine-mile-ride took attendees through several city neighborhoods and made stops in Cambridge and Somerville. The event ended under the Zakim Bridge, at which point costumed attendees took part in a giant dance party.

Costumes ranged Saturday night from butterflies to zebras and skeletons. A pair on a tandem bike were dressed as Batman and Robin.

Other attendees took their love for the creepy holiday a step further, adding carved pumpkins, boom boxes and flashing lights to their bikes.
