We just couldn't make it to the BikeDenver Winter Solstice Ride. 5 o'clock traffic, lack of planning on my part and a series of ob-stacles thwarted our efforts.
A last minute executive sessions wrought a stroke of genius...the first ever (though unofficial) Bike Arvada Winter Solstice Ride.
Next year we'll plan and promote it for sure. Despite the chill and the impromptu ride with no planned route we had a good time. We rode from our house over to Ridge Road, then to Olde Town and we returned to our neighborhood via W 57th Avenue.
By next year we'll need at least one more string of Christmas lights, some jingle bells and a at least one more set of bike lights for Boone.
