Club members gathered the evening of Dec 16th at Blue Jacket Park in Baldwin Park for our Holiday Lights ride throughout Baldwin Park, Winter Park, Windsong and adjacent festively decorated communities. Our group had 75 cyclists, many with extra lights beside the required front and rear bicycle lights.
We headed out right at 6 p.m. with Stuart Beal and his trusty GPS as the ride leader and Penny Potter performing sweep duties. It was a pleasant evening and roads and trails were in perfect shape for the ride. The many light displays were very well done. We encountered quite a few drivers in holiday spirits who held at various intersections to let our group pass. Mike Orlovsky, the FFW Social Director, set up a spread of cookies and other treats as well as hot drinks after the ride for everyone to enjoy while they talked about what they liked best about the ride.
