Santa Cycle Ride 2012

December 23, 2012


Ford and Lynn Sakata did a great job organizing the inaugural Santa Cycle Ride held 15 Dec 2012 in downtown Arlington Heights. They lead the parade on their tandem towing a float with a 6 foot tall lighted, inflated snowman. The power to bring the float to life was a cleverly concealed gasoline powered generator. Batteries provided the power to the lights on the rest of the participants and their bicycles. We received many happy shouts and honks of approval from those we passed. After the parade, all the participants enjoyed dinner together at Eddie’s on Northwest Highway. Ford has done a great job┬ácombining all of the still photos and videos into one video with music.
