Holiday Lights Ride

Holiday Lights Ride

'Twas ten days before Christmas and all through Cycle Works
Not a person was crabby, not even the jerks. The ugly sweaters were washed by the riders with Cheer (mostly because Tide is so pricey) in the hopes that the Holiday Lights Ride soon would be here. 

This year let's kick it up a notch, if you're up for some extra holiday cheer come to the ride dressed as either Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause, an elf or as a reindeer because how rad will it be to see a parade of Christmas Joy riding around Lincoln! This is completely optional, you can wear anything and we will still welcome you. 

The wait is over, dust off your mittens and scarfs, decorate your bikes with garland and lights, grab the mistletoe and join us for our 4th annual Holiday Lights Ride. We will meet at Cycle Works at 5pm for hot cider, cookies and socializing. The ride will leave at 6pm from the shop, we will take a tour through the Sheridan neighborhoods to take in the light and decorations before ending at Yia Yia's where you can enjoy pizza, cold beverages and great company. 

For your safety and others, lights (both front and rear) and helmets are required. We will be riding at night on the public streets and trails so please be aware of traffic and ride safely. This will be a social ride at a chit chat pace, cyclists of all skill levels are welcomed.

Cranksgiving!
Nov

12:00 PM12:00

Cranksgiving!

Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt, it has been held annually in New York City since 1999, initially by bicycle messengers.

Bring a bike, a bag, a lock, and about $15-$20 to buy food. All of the food collected at grocery stores benefit your local charity, the Bellevue Food Pantry, to help provide needy families with a wealth of food during the week of Thanksgiving. First of all, riders must use bicycles as their only means of transportation. After all, why would you call it "Cranks-giving" if cycling was not involved? Secondly, no entry fee or registration charge is collected! The point of the ride is for charity, so we're doing it out of the kindness of our little cycling hearts! ♥ So join us! You don't have to be a member so don't worry about that, but if you have fun and like us, check out our rides and monthly meetings!
