2014 Critical Christmas Bicycle Ride

2014 Critical Christmas Bicycle Ride

Sunday, December 21, 2014

Starting at 5:45 PM/Depart at 6:00 PM

Start and Finish at Custom House Plaza, Monterey

The Critical Christmas Bicycle Ride will roll around Monterey once again on December 21, 2014.

The Critical Christmas Bicycle Ride started many years ago as a cross between “Critical Mass” and that goofy event in Ukiah involving semi-trucks festooned with hundreds of Christmas bulbs. The goals of Critical Christmas are to get out for a little fun (and family) exercise during the Christmas season, and (this is the really important part) ride a bike with as many battery powered LED Christmas lights as can be duct taped in place.

Critical Christmas is not a race, but it is a family event, so bring the kiddies, bring the duct tape, bring the batteries, bring the lights, bring more lights and if that’s not enough lights bring more.

The event rolls out of the Custom House Plaza fountain area at 6:00 PM on Sunday, December 21, 2014 (rain will cancel). We have no predetermined route, so whatever happens, happens. The only knows part of the route is that we will do hot laps around the fountain…probably in two directions.

The event is Sunday, December 21, 2014 and is free to all riders. Expect to roll out at 6:00PM. Custom House Plaza is located at the water’s edge at the foot of Alvarado Street and not too far from Fisherman’s Wharf.

Go to Facebook and search for “Critical Christmas” to get more information. Rain will cancel. This is a free event.

VCM KIT ORDER HAPPENING THIS MONTH

The moment has arrived.  The Champion System Direct Ordering Account has been set up.  Attached you will find a tutorial on how to set up your own sub account and place your order.  ORDERING BEGINS SUNDAY, OCTOBER12 AND ENDS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31!!!! After that time, there will be no opportunity to place an order for a long time so get it done now.  All orders will be individually packaged but sent to Robin Harness for distribution to save on shipping costs.  If you are not in the Monterey area and need your order shipped to you, please contact me & we will make arrangements for payment of the shipping cost.  Production of our order will begin after the order window closes on 10/31 and will take SIX TO EIGHT WEEKS to be completed.  So don’t expect your order to get here before the end of December.  Sometimes we do get our order earlier than expected but there are no guarantees that will happen.

8/16 Saturday Ride Will Be A Pie Ride to Gizdich

The 8:30 Sat. ride is going to be doing a pie ride on August 16th – car week.  Those who want to do the longer ride will be meeting at the normal 7:30 start place – but the start will be at 8:00 AM (I believe that’s the anchor).

Those that want a bit of a shorter ride will be starting from Pezzini’s at 9AM.  There will be two return routes for those that prefer not returning on Hwy 1.

Hope to see you there!
