Night Lights Holiday Ride and Dinner & Drinks (Hot Italian Emeryville)

Plan:  To become a moving Christmas Tree along the bay followed by a Happy Hour holiday dinner celebration!

We need YOUR creative ideas to light up ourselves and our bikes:  bike lights, spoke lights, LED necklaces, mini flashlights attached to ourselves...where to go?  ACE hardware?  Bike Shops?  Chime in!

Route:  10 flat miles along the SF Bay Trail to the Golden Gate Fields Racetrack and back.

Locks:  We will meet at the restaurant and lock our locks around the racks to eliminate excess weight.

Bring lights, water, snack, helmet, lock, layers, full finger gloves, cash or credit card for bill to be split at the end of dinner.

Hot Italian: we have a group reservation.

Parking lot available and closest BART is MacArthur

Rain or drizzle cancels and we'll reschedule

New to the SF/Bay Area and Bay Area Cycling meetup members will be joining us.

    I bought some battery operated stings of lights at Target. Red jewels and small LED's to wrap around my bike and me.

      That's cool! Can't wait to see. Thanks, Rich-that will be helpful. Thankfully it's a short flat ride. One slope. Yes, two other groups. Even though we have about 30 right now, it usually whittles down to 15-20 or so (but you never know,) and I'm sure the cold might keep some people in.

    Hi Night Light Cyclists-

    Our ride is coming up this Friday, meeting at 6:30. Wear warm clothes and bring front and back lights! Well, I guess we'll have lights all over, anyway. Look forward to seeing what everyone's bikes look like!

    If you have not as yet rigged up your bike you may find this workshop helpful. Some of the attendees will be repairing or building bike lights.

    You can get led "xmas" lights goe bikes. They're battery operated. If my schedule agrees, I'm in.

    Sounds great, I'm looking forward to it. I'll be driving to the starting point. I'm not familiar with this location, is parking an issue?

      There should be plenty of parking in the two lots: one in front of the restaurant/Public Market and the other in front of the movie theater. Just drive around, you should have no problem. See you then!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
