Mark your calendars for the Annual Christmas Lights Tour & After Party at Maverick Bikes on Friday, December 15th!
The ride will DEPART PROMPTLY at 6:00 p.m. from Maverick, and refreshments will be available upon return. Plan to arrive early so you won't miss the 6:00 pm roll-out.
The route will depart from Maverick and meander through nearby neighborhoods with the finale through downtown on King St.
Feel free to decorate your bike and yourself with holiday lights! Nothing like cheerfully added visibility.
The entry fee to do this ride is a food donation for Ampersand Pantry Project in Leesburg. The Project drop box for food is inside the front door of the showroom at Maverick Bikes and you can drop food anytime, the box is there 24-7.

Average speed will be 8 mph with occasional stops to take in the sights. This is a No Drop Ride - no one will be left behind. Ride leader will stop periodically to regroup. The ride will take about 1 hour.
Please make sure your bike is in good working order and has sufficient air in the tires. All bicycles MUST have working white front lights and rear red lights or reflectors since the ride is after dark. (Virginia law!) If you need maintenance help or a new set of lights, please stop by the shop well before the ride for assistance.
Helmets are required! A bandana worn under the helmet provides just enough cover to keep your ears warm.
If it is cold, bundle up in your winter coat, warm fuzzy boots and gloves. Layers, layers, layers! For a short slow ride, you can pedal your clipless pedals with whatever is on your feet. The point is to stay warm! No one will work up a sweat on this ride.
Cyclists ride at their own risk.
