If boaters can have boat parades, why can't Bikers have a Bike Parade? To some it may seem silly, but there is a child in all of us and sometimes it needs to come out. Our nation has gone through a lot of stress these past few months. We need to spread some cheer. So please join us. Please invite friends and family to participate in this event. The route is detailed below, so if you know of other groups who may want to join us along the route please let them know.

DATE: December 22, 2001 (Saturday)
TIME: Ride starts at 7:30 in the morning (so you need to be there prior to start time.)
PLACE: Santiago Cycling, 115 N. Prosect, Tustin - First Street and Prospect
ADDITIONAL PARKING: Behind the office buildings on Fourth Street or at the Park on Irvine and Prospect.
ROUTE: Alton Flats - See Detailed Route Below - 24 Miles - Flat - 15 to 16 MPH

Please bring some goodies and leave them at the shop so we will have some Holiday Nourishment after the ride. There will be a group picture taken.

Last but not least, THINK SAFETY when decorating your bike or wearing any type of costume. Fasten any decoration securely with duck tape and cable ties. We do not want anything flying off or into any of your bike parts. Test Ride your bike to make sure all parts are working. A small group of us decorated our bikes last year without any incidents. HELMETS MUST BE WORN.
