Last year, I rode along with a group that did an evening 'Christmas Lights' ride that left from Irvine, went around Back Bay, up to CdM, back down Bayside to Balboa, across the ferry, back down the peninsula and back to Irvine. Had a really good time. Seemed to be members of OCRR and maybe BCI. Anybody planning on doing a similar ride like that again this year? Was wondering if that was an annual thing.
I do my own version in NOC, hitting up a few neighborhoods in Anaheim, Fullerton and apexing in Brea near Lambert/Sunflower. That Brea neighborhood is amazing. They even have a brass band playing Christmas music at one house on weekends every year.
