Holiday Women of WOBO Ride

Just across the estuary, there’s a little street by the name of Thompson Ave that just goes WILD for the holidays. Lights, music, trees, reindeer — these folks go all out! Last year, visitors to one yard were encouraged to step on up to a homemade stage for karaoke, and another family handed out mulled cider to passersby. If you’ve got holiday spirit, this is the place for you.

Our winter Women of WOBO ride will take us across the bridge to Alameda to explore the craziest stretch of holiday decorations in the East Bay. And, as a holiday bonus, one lucky rider will head home with “bike lingerie” courtesy of our friends at Pedal Panties. (One name will be selected at random from the list of ride attendees.) All female-identified people with bikes are welcome, though helmets and lights will be required for this nighttime ride. Won’t you join us for December’s island getaway?
