We are joining mid-route the Dialed Cycling Team's Ugly Christmas Sweater charity ride! Wear your UGLIEST Christmas Sweater for this "rain or shine" ride.  Feel free to deck out your bike with a little Christmas cheer too!

We'll start from Bike Clark County, catch DC along the route, and ride out toward Frenchman's Bar with them.  They are starting at The Hub in East Van (see details on the other ride) and will continue to the Frenchman's Bar Park.  You are welcome to join them as they head to the river or-- take a shortcut and loop back to downtown with me via old Lower River Road and the Waterfront, arriving at Compass Coffee at mile 12 where DC will also regroup for a coffee before heading back to East Van.  

At that point we are less than a mile from Bike Clark County.  If you're "done", head back.  The rest of us will add another 9 miles out to Wintler Park and back now that we're all caffeinated and warmed.  DC is heading that way, too, so we may ride together if that works out. 

Not that it's going to rain...but this is a good chance to test out your rain gear with a short ride if it does.

The Charity: 
DC is asking for donations to buy and build bikes for kids this Christmas.  Any help you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated... this can include making a donation, sharing the link on your social media, and even asking for corporate donations. Together, we can make this happen!

Please note:  This is not the same event as the Christmas Bike Build - 12/8/2018.  

If it is raining, please mount up those fenders, or kindly ride in the back of the group.
