On Sunday, December 11th, 2016 join the 20th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride. This leisurely and festive singing bike parade goes from Arlington to Boston and back. The 22-mile bicycle ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street – we stop and sing carols at local landmarks, and just parade along showing some creative holiday spirit.
There will be free hot mulled cider and freshly-brewed coffee and pastries thanks to our starting-point hosts at the Kickstand Café. We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square, courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association! The ride also makes an optional warm-up stop at the Menotomy Grill & Tavern just a mile from the ride’s end – come enjoy some free appetizers and more! It’s a parade, not a race – so if you have a bicycle, we’d love your holiday spirit along for the ride! Join the Jingle Ride!
