19th annual Jingle Ride

Posted by 365 Things Boston on Sun, Dec 13, 2015

"What has 200 wheels and antlers?

The Jingle Ride of course!

The 19th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride is one of the longest-running Boston holiday sporting events and certainly one of the most colorful. What started out as a simple and fun idea to bring some cycling magic to the holidays has evolved into an annual event that many come to year after year. For those who love a parade, love to sing, or who get a kick out of wearing antlers or a holiday costume, the Jingle Ride is a must for your holiday calendar.

This year’s ride starts and ends at the Kickstand Café, the popular café in a popular location in Arlington Center next to the Minuteman Bikeway. Registration begins at 10:15. They'll provide some delicious hot beverages and pastries to fuel us up!

The 22-mile ride (round-trip) follows the Minuteman Bikeway and then heads for Harvard Square, the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street. The group makes occasional stops to sing carols for passersby, and enjoys bringing some unexpected holiday cheer to all who witness the group. The most-beloved stop is at Harvard Square, where the Harvard Square Business Association serves cookies and hot cocoa to the group – an especially welcome treat in chilly December!

It’s a parade, not a race – so if you have a bicycle, we’d love your holiday spirit along for the ride!

Riders are encouraged to give a $25 suggested donation for the ride; the beneficiary is Horizons for Homeless Children."
