It’s SECOND  annual Jingle Bell Ride.

On Friday, 12-21-2011, we’ll ride up the L.A. River trail from the mighty Tortuga’s Long Beach Cyclery in Bixby Knolls (Long Beach Blvd and Bixby) to 3rd and Traction in the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles for lunch at the Wurstküche.  Depart 9:30 am [sharp].

It’s the annual JBR event; an event the cycling community has been anticipating with lots of zoom’d out holiday fever; a fever so intense it will give HeyZeus (nuestro Padre; aka the Birthday Boy) cause to make a sneak attack off the front from this sacred tomb (or did he already do that?) with frenzied cheer and declare the celebration an honor to his martyrdom.

Sometimes even poser racer-boyz just need to mozy along on their steel & carbon ponies with a chillax’d attitude and enjoy the scenery at a holiday pace.  The river trail is beautiful in its solitude; it allows a respite from the heavy chaos of motorized street life but at the same time, simultaneously, it’s a romantic reminder of the unrelenting brutality of the environs through which it meanders.  The LA River Trail is an under-utilized resource.

The first annual was a successful event. We had about 35 riders.  Come out and make this year’s even more remarkable.

The Wurstküche boasts a sexy list of tasty sausage dogs and french fries with a great selection of beers to keep the spirit lively.

Put it on your calendar for Christmas Season 2012.

Here’s some pictures from last year:
