The Jingle Ride is coming! I hope you can join us for the happiest ride around: you and 100 new friends, many in costume, with motorists and passersby cheering you on instead of cursing at you See below for details. You definitely don't need to be a hard-core cyclist to join this ride...and if you are, this is a great way to invite new people to enjoy the bike!

If you've been on the ride before, please note the starting point is under new ownership. It's now called the Kickstand Cafe, and the owners are very bike-friendly!

Happy December riding everyone!
-Karin T, who has Christmas lights on the trailer year-round

Put some antlers on your helmet, tie some jingle bells to your bicycle, and join fellow holiday merrymakers at the 17th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride.
On Sunday, December 15th, bring family and friends to Arlington for a leisurely and festive bike parade to Boston and back. This 22-mile ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Charles River bike path along the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street – we may stop and sing carols for passersby, or just parade along showing some creative holiday spirit. We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square, courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association!
