COSTUME & DECORATIONS: Santa suits and decorated bikes with lots of lights are highly encouraged. Elves, Reindeer, penguins, etc are other alternative costumes to check as well. LED powered AA lights can be found at Walmart, Target, etc. Cheap Santa costumes can be found on the internet for a reasonable price that will make any grinch smile.
RIDE DETAILS: This ride is slow paced, with lots of "ho ho ho's" and holiday cheer spread. NO gut busting hills...at least not at a fast pace.
Social stops for refreshments will be made along the way, as well as a stop at a shelter to drop off gifts for kids. Also, a stop for some warm food at your favorite brewery has been arranged!
A NOTE ON WEATHER AND HOW TO DRESS: Be prepared if it's chilly outside! Layer smartly. Bring hand/toe warmers, a Saint Bernard with a cask, anything really....
This will be moved to the "weather date" if canceled (12/15/18). All updates will be posted on the Fats' website, forums, facebook & twitter.
-Bring a headlamp and/or light that can be attached to your bike for visibility. -Exchange phone numbers with someone so if you get separated, you have a good chance of meeting back up with us.
-Please. No one likes a belligerent Santa.
-Bring spending money because Santa gets thirsty.
-Bring a lock so your sleigh doesn't leave without you.
-Bring a repair kit in case any of your light strands don't behave. Usually, electrical tape and a few zip ties are more than enough.
-Dress warm or at least according to the weather. Those hand warmer packets can be a huge help if the weather outside is frightful.
WE HOPE YOU CAN COME OUT AND JOIN US FOR SOME HOLIDAY CHEER!
