Christmas light ride

The city of Knoxville is having a ride the 19th from downtown to look at Christmas lights. I should have my lights on my bike by then and if I do I am going. It will be my first night ride. Sounds like FUN to me.

They are a lot of fun. Our cycling club has a Christmas Lights ride each year. They're usually around 10 miles so we're out in the cold less than an hour then it's off to dinner

Of the lights, and of the bike with the new headlight!

My club is having a Christmas Lights Ride tomorrow night. I found some battery operated Christmas lights at Wallyworld to decorate myself and my bike for the occasion. I'll get some pictures.

My club has a similar ride most years. I'm leading it on Sunday evening. We'll do an easy 5-10 miles, and have some hot chocolate and Irish coffee afterwards.

We call our ride the "Tour de Lites".

There were only a few of us and there were not as many decorations as I remember in years past in that neighborhood, but it was big fun riding around at night all lit up. I have not done a lot of night riding, but I want to do more. Hard to believe how warm it was on a mid December night! [8D]
