    This ride is one of my Christmas traditions. I don't miss it. Prepare your legs for hills, there are a few on this route. BUT it is so much fun to decorate your bike and then look at lights. Traffic often stops.lets us go because they seem to enjoy seeing our lights.
    Come join this fun, fun ride.
