Can't deny it: dressing up in elf costumes and riding with other crazed holiday bike fanatics is apparently very popular. Go figure. Since the board of irresponsibles could care less, it's up to each of us to act alone in our quest for holiday satisfaction. But sometimes alone means together, as is the case this coming Saturday as we join San Diego Bicycle Club for their annual toy donation ride.So pull on those green tights, Dec 14, as we ride from UCC Cyclery on a 50 mile (round trip) toy donation ride to the Kroc Salvation Army. Being judged by other crazies in the costume contest is the least of your worries, it's the photos that keep on living on Facebook you need to worry about. Plan to bring an unwrapped toy and adding some holiday cheer to a child in need. Details here.
However, this Thursday, Dec 12th at 5:30pm, the San Diego Bicycle Coalition is having their 3rd annual Holiday Joy Ride. It's not free ($10), but there is beer and the route is so easy, you could ride it on a unicycle. That is if you happen to have a unicycle. More details here.
