Ride Description: 

It's that time of year to spread quirky holiday cheer! This ride will be the chance to show off your ugly holiday sweaters (that you personally really dig) and add so many lights to your bike that your last name should be Griswold. Or perhaps you want to wear your Grinch or Santa costume or jingle bells that you've been secretly modeling and waiting 12 months to show-off? Come one, come all, this ride is about hilarious fun!! If you just want to join the fun without costume, no worries, you can ride along and laugh at us all! We will conclude the ride with a mini-social including coffee and treats hosted by Trek Bicycle Redmond.

Hi All,  I'm going to head over to Trek and will make a game time decision for ride.  Looks like light rain.  If it's misty, we'll ride.  If it's a monsoon we won't.  Somewhere in between....we'll see.  Sam
