The 2020 Holiday Lights Ride (self guided)
As we have all experienced, 2020 has been a tough year. So Maverick Charities and Bike Loudoun are coming together to bring much-needed cheer and support to our local community with a COVID safe solo Christmas lights tour.
The ride will benefit the Ampersand Pantry Project. Please bring 3 or more non-perishable items to Maverick Bikes & Cafe anytime between now and December 22nd and drop them off at our front door collection box.
The 2020 Holiday Lights Ride will start and end at Maverick Bikes & Cafe. Come and ride between 5pm and 7:30pm on Saturday December 19th. Enjoy the lights and renew the spirit of the season in your heart and soul.
The route map link is provided below with this announcement. Please follow safe practices when riding, and for COVID: go in small groups, keep distanced, and wear your mask when appropriate. The ride will take no more than a half hour even at a slow pace. This ride is for fun!
Finally, if you bring three non-perishable food items to Maverick Bikes & Cafe on Friday the 18th and ride the lights ride, you will receive a FREE hot beverage from Maverick Cafe! Choose between drip coffee, hot mulled cider, or hot cocoa to warm you up after your ride! Maverick Cafe staff will be on site until 8pm to serve you and collect your donations.
So, please, come full your hearts with Christmas cheer and help those in need.
We look forward to seeing you on December 18th!
