The Witches cackled their way through the neighborhood and now it is time for Santa's Elf's to join in the fun. Please join us for the Mountain House Ugly Sweater Ride! Wear your Ugliest Christmas Sweater, decorate your reindeer bike and enjoy an evening on the road with fellow Elf's collecting toys for Toys for Tots.
In the spirit of giving the head Elf has requested that you bring candy canes to toss out to your neighbors. For those with Bike Trailers we would appreciate if you can bring them along so that we have a place to put any Toys that are collected.
Toys for Tots is a gift giving organizations run by the United States Marines. New, unwrapped toys are collected and distributed to local area children that might otherwise not receive any Christmas Presents. So please spread the word to your neighbors to bring an unwrapped new gift and find us along the route through their neighborhood. Who knows maybe Santa will give them a few extra points on the Nice List.
We will also have Ed with Tracy Cyclery at the event prior to the ride to do minor adjustments. If you would like to save some time you can go visit Ed prior to the event.
