Holiday Lights Fun Ride!
Friday, December 14, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EST)
The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is teaming up with our friends from the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia (BCP) for December's Fun Ride! Tis the season to start decorating for the holidays, so we thought what better way to enjoy the season than to do a bike ride through South Philly to enjoy the holiday lights.
We encourage participants to decorate themselves and their bikes as bright and colorful as you would like. Best decorated will be treated at La Lupe (1201 South 9th Street Philadelphia, PA ) for dinner after the ride.
This ride could potentially be a cold one, so come prepared and dressed in warm clothes. (As warm as you think you should plus another layer - particularly hands, feet and ears).
Meet Up at Performance Bicycles (1300 South Columbus Blvd, Riverview Plaza, Philadelphia, PA) @ 5:30pm.
End time approximation @ 7:30pm at the old La Lupe Restaurant (1201 South 9th Street, Philadelphia, PA) now calledTamalex II Restaurant
Holiday Lights Ride Guidelines:
· Stop at all stop lights
· Stop at all stop signs
· Use hand signals when turning
· Be as friendly as possible to all road users throughout the ride (bring your bells!!)
· Let your group lead or sweep know if you plan to peel off at any point throughout the ride
When & Where
Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia (BCGP)
**Because there are better ways to get around! Founded in 1972, BCGP is a nonprofit organization that serves the Pennsylvania counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia as well as South Jersey and the state of Delaware promoting bicycling as a healthy, low-cost, and environmentally-friendly form of transportation and recreation.
A reminder to all registrants: please remember that this ride follows all of the rules of the road and requires helmets!
We are asking all riders to be in the Performance Bikes parking lot by 5:30pm so that we can begin dividing the group up into smaller, more manageable groups. Group leaders will be wearing reflective vests asking you to sign BCGP/BCP ride waiver form which is required before you ride.
If you are interested in joining the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia for post-ride chow at La Lupe at 1202 S. 9th St (now called Tamalex II), let a ride organizer know before the start. Depending on interest, it's possible not everyone will be able to fit into the restaurant, but there are other food options along 9th street.
