BFOC Presents Dallas Santa Ride, Dec. 20th!

With Christmas right around the corner, we felt it was the perfect time to gather everyone up for a holiday themed ride. Dress up like santa, an elf, or wear an ugly holiday sweater, and join us for a group ride around Downtown Dallas. Also, we’re teaming up with Toys for Tots, and asking everyone to bring an unwrapped gift before the ride. The US Marines will be on hand to take the gifts before we head out.

This ride will begin at the new Main Street Garden Park at Harwood and Main Street (across the street from where we took the Tweed Ride group photo) on December 20th at 2:30PM. We’re going to try and drum up a Hot Chocolate sponsor to warm everyone up before we head out. Since we’re a few weeks out, the weather is unpredictable at this point, so you might want to look at buying some thermals in preparation. For those who have not attended a BFOC group ride, we ride very casually, and move at a slow to moderate pace. Be sure to decorate your bike…Home Depot has battery powered LED christmas string lights on sale right now!

Special thanks to Carlos Cardoza (our winner at the Halloween ride) for coming up with the idea and creating the artwork! For more inspiration, check out David Sedaris’ hysterical Santaland Diaries. The Facebook event page is located here. Be sure to check back for more details, and route maps.

  10. If you guys still need a Hot Chocolate sponsor feel free to email me and we can work something out.

  11. Just realized my comment might seem a little behind being that the post is from 2009 but the offer is on the table for any of the Bike Friendly Oakcliff events in the current and future tense beyond just Hot Chocolate for those cold events.

  12. Thanks, William! I think we can definitely take you up on that offer! 🙂
