Holiday Lights Ride

When: Sat., Dec. 12, 6 p.m. 2015

While the holidays are packed with pure nostalgia in many ways, many of us have fond memories of driving around in the back seat of Grandma’s car to cruise through “the good neighborhoods” to look at extravagant light displays. Or maybe you were too short to see out the window and just had to listen to your grandma and aunt “oooh!” and “aaah!” while you were stuck looking at the back of their seats. Either way, Bikes Beans & Bordeaux re-creates that feeling with a community bike ride that replicates the vaguely voyeuristic thrill of creeping through a neighborhood that’s not yours to check out strangers’ light displays. Luckily for you, shorty, your bike won’t block your view this time. Just make sure to add some light displays of your own to your bike for safety. – Thaddeus McCollum
