Greetings! South Philly Holiday Lights Bike Ride and Social Hour Dec 12th

UPDATE: due to icy roads, the lights ride and social hour will be pushed back to Thursday, December 19th.

Did you know that riding bicycles in a group increases holiday cheer, improves mood, and decreases the chances of receiving (or giving) a Jelly of the Month Club as a holiday bonus?
Ellen and Clark Griswold, wishing they had gone on a holiday bike ride instead
It's true! Or at least difficult to verify.

Deck your self and your ride in lights and bells and come with us on the 2nd annual Bicycle Coalition Holiday Lights Ride! We'll be taking a social 7-mile ride through South Philly to see the impressive light displays. Then we will warm our cockles at Cavanaugh's in Headhouse Square with food and drinks.

This is a free ride, but it is for Bicycle Coalition members only (members can bring a friend). RSVP for the ride and after-party here. Not a member? Support better bicycling and join today. Not sure if your membership is current? RSVP for the ride and we'll let you know via e-mail.
