Where: The parking lot across from the Kilted Mermaid at 1937 Old Dixie in downtown Vero Beach.
Why: To enjoy some of Vero Bech’s best decorated houses and share some holiday cheer with your fellow club members.
Bring: Your bike decorated in its holiday finest. Any kind of bike is fine - hybrids, beach cruisers, tricycles, unicycles are all fine. As are tandems, of course. Ok, you don’t have to decorate your bike, but if you don’t, you might get called a scrooge. Obviously, front and rear lights are required since this is a night ride and its its illegal, not to mention dumb, to ride at night without lights. If you don't normally ride at night and need some guidance on what lights to buy, go see the folks at your favorite local bike shop. If you go to Orchid Islands Bikes and Kayaks don’t forget to tell them you are a Vero Cycling member. They will give you a discount. One of my favorite headlight is the Cygolight Metro 400. It is supper bright, USB rechargeable, include a great mount, and sells for less than $60.
How Far and How Fast: Not very. This is not your usual "go as fast as you can pedal" club ride. This is a smell the roses (or at least the holiday cookies). No one will be left behind.
Post Ride Festivities: Anyone who knows Larry knows that (i) there are always post-ride festivities on Larry’s rides and (ii) if it was up Larry, the festivities would always be at the Kilted Mermaid. Bottom line - join Larry the rest of the group at the Kilted Mermaid immediately following the ride. We know it’s a school night. Don’t worry, Larry will give you a note to take to the teacher.
