Come one come all!
Put some antlers on your helmet, tie some jingle bells to your two-wheeled friend, and join fellow holiday merrymakers at the 16th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride.
On Sunday, December 9th, bring family and friends to Arlington for a leisurely and festive bike parade to Boston and back. This 22-mile ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Charles River bike path along the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street – we may stop and sing carols for passersby, or just parade along showing some creative holiday spirit. We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square,courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association!
