Holiday Lights Ride 12-14-13

December 26, 2013


Below is a link to all of the pictures we’ve been able to collect so far from the CATS Holiday Lights Ride on 12-14-13.
If you send us more pictures, we’ll add them to the set.

We want to thank Ford and Lynn for leading a very fun ride, for both the Chicago Area Tandem Society and the Arlington Heights Bicycle Club. In case you are wondering, the blower which keeps the snowman inflated on Ford’s trailer is powered by a gasoline powered generator located on a concealed shelf below the inflatable. Brian and Susan have a powerful speaker which fits in a water bottle cage, so we enjoyed Christmas Carols as we rode and enjoyed the holiday decorations on businesses and homes. We all enjoyed the shouts and honks of approval we were greeted with along the way.

Ford has sent a “thank you” email to the public works department for the great job they did plowing the streets of Arlington Heights absolutely free of the 3″ of snow which fell earlier in the day.

We all enjoyed hot chocolate and burgers at Eddie’s after the ride. We look forward to riding and “refreshmenting” with everyone in the coming year.
