Event description

Description

Enjoy a two-wheeled tour of tacos and churros in Lincoln Heights, presented by the Metro Bicycle Education Safety Training (BEST) Program.

Join C.I.C.L.E. as we travel to the wildly popular Avenue 26 Taco Stand - where tacos are only $1! After feasting on their delicious tacos, we’ll walk across the street and check out Garcia’s Desserts, made to order churros, like caramel or chocolate filled churros. Or try their homemade flan, jello and funnel cakes. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Beginning at Metro’s newest bicycle hub at Union Station, we’ll ride to Lincoln Heights and check out the community’s Christmas Light displays on the way. Make sure you bundle up, because it promises to be a chilly night, but we’ll warm up as we ride.

These are small, local, cash only food stands. Please bring cash.

All ride participants will receive a free 1-month Metro Bike Hub membership. We will also raffle off a one-year FREE Bike Hub membership to a lucky winner.

Date & Time: Saturday, 12/30 – Meet at 5:00 pm, roll out at 5:30 pm, ride ends at 7:15pm.
