Beast Mode brought his bike back to Oakland on Friday.

Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch invited fellow inhabitants of the California city to take part in a ride with a picture of himself wearing a suit on a bike. 

Not much context was given, but people still turned out in droves.

According to Katie Dowd and Michelle Robertson of the San Francisco Chronicle, Lynch, who held onto the driver’s window of a white van, was joined by as many as 400 riders. Some went to great lengths just to pedal with Beast Mode:

"The parade appeared to begin at Oakland Tech High School and meander down College Avenue through Berkeley. There were smiles aplenty —on the faces of both the riders and spectators, many of whom were armed with cellphones to snap photos. One man apparently drove up from Stockton just to participate."

The 31-year-old bruising back seemed thrilled with the turnout:

Never forget, everyone, that Lynch is really, really from Oakland.
