More info online here

Gather at Fruitvale BART at 5:30PM, and head out at 6:00 PM (this ride will start ON TIME) over the Fruitvale Bridge to enjoy an abundance of festive decorations. The ~10-mile route will meander through the Island City’s flat, quiet streets and conclude at Christmas Tree Lane.

Dress warmly, bring your camera, your holiday cheer, and your friends. Music bikes with seasonal playlists welcome!

There are a few simple rules:
1. Stay in the righthand lane
2. Leave nothing and no one behind
3. Stop at red lights
4. Ride straight, ride predictably
5. Bring charged lights
6. Have fun!

Also: don’t forget your mask in case you need to go inside somewhere, and please ask before hugging/touching people. If you have cold/flu/COVID symptoms, we love you but please stay home.
