Group Ride

  • Kickstand Cafe 594 Massachusetts Avenue Arlington, MA, 02476 United States (map)

This is not a ride we put together, but we will be attending. Who can resist the opportunity to ride their bikes with a number of other people and sing christmas carols? Not us! See you at the Jingle Ride!


What has 200 wheels and antlers?

The Jingle Ride of course!

The 19th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride is one of the longest-running Boston holiday bicycle event and certainly one of the most colorful. What started out as a simple and fun idea to bring some cycling magic to the holidays has evolved into an annual event that many come to year after year. For those who love a parade, love social cycling singing sappy songs and who get a kick out of wearing antlers or a holiday costume, the Jingle Ride is a must for your holiday calendar. Bike Jersies and gift certificates to the Jingle Ride's best costumes

On Sunday, December 13th, bring family and friends to Arlington for a leisurely and festive bike parade to Boston and back. This 22-mile ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Charles River bike path along the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street – we may stop and sing carols for passersby, or just parade along showing some creative holiday spirit. 

We meet at the wonderful Kickstand Cafe starting at 10:15 (for a 11:00 AM ON TIME departure), where they'll provide hot beverages and delicious pastries. We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square, courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association! 

Your suggested donation of $25 goes directly to our beneficiary, Horizons for Homeless Children.

It’s a parade, not a race – so if you have a bicycle, we’d love your holiday spirit along for the ride!
