3rd Annual Illumination Ride

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 03

From the email:

The third annual Illuminations Bike Tour will be held on December 15, a joint production of the Somerville Bicycle Committee and Somerville Arts Council. Please join us. Details are below and attached.

The guided group ride will be shorter this year so folks can spend more time looking at the lights and stay warmer. For those who would like to tour the longer route from last year, maps will be available. Those touring the longer route may continue after the short guided tour concludes, may meet with others at the suggested times below or tour the route on your own schedule with friends.

Please join us and happy winter solstice,
~ Brian Postlewaite (for the Somerville BIcycle Committee)
