Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on November 29, 2011

If you are in the mood for a holiday ride in December, you’re in luck. Here are two:

“A well-mannered social ride* to enjoy the neighborhood holiday decorations. We will take off from the Whole Foods at Lemmon & Lomo Alto and take a little spin around the neighborhood. The pace will be nice and easy (less than 15 mph) and no one will be left behind.

  • When: December 3 at 6pm
  • Where: Whole Foods at Lemmon & Lomo Alto (map)
  • Cost: Free!

* All traffic laws will be honored. Bring your safety lights & helmets.”

Dallas Cycle Chic’s Boutique Ride – December 11, 2011

From their site:

“Get out your bike basket and find your scarf – Sunday December 11th 2011 will be the first Cycle Chic Boutique Ride, visiting the best locally-owned boutiques of the West Village and Henderson Ave. There’s a good variety of shops with guys and ladies clothes, bike-friendly home furnishings, and odds and ends perfect for socking stuffing.

We’re meeting at Transit Bikes on Blackburn at McKinney Ave so you can arrive early to air your tires, lube your chain, buy a basket, and get that red flashing rear light you’ve been meaning to buy.

At about 1:00pm we’ll leave Transit for our first boutique stop at the newDemerara before heading to Henderson for Gypsy WagonAnother Time & Place,Pandemonium!, and We Are 1976. Around 4pm we should be ready to bike back to the West Village.

There will be holiday cookies, wine, cheese and snacks along the way and some good store discounts including 10% off at Gypsy Wagon and 60% off at Another Time & Place since they’re moving.

If this is your first adventure to the West Village by bike here are some handy directions from the Katy Trail and the Cityplace DART Station.”

      Just added the DORBA event.

      I wish I could go to the Pondero Ramble. I’m not sure if I can get free that day.

    We’ve decided to move the Dallas Santa Ride to next Saturday (the 10th). It’s no fun seeing Christmas lights in the rain!

      …apologies, we’ve decided to cancel the Dallas Santa Ride. Hope to try again next year! We’ll be doing some more social rides soon, though.

    It will be our last chance to rebuild bikes to give to others for the holidays.
    Come for the camaraderie, come for the fun, come to learn more about repairing your own bikes.
