About the Jingle Ride:
Started in 1996, the Jingle Ride (in non-pandemic times) is a leisurely and festive bike parade from Arlington to Boston and back. This 22-mile ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street. There is a hot cocoa and cookie stop, and plenty of time for singing carols on the bike and off. This colorful Ciclismo Classico tradition has raised thousands of dollars for their charity partner Horizons for Homeless Children over the years.
Note: Ciclismo Classico recommends riding only with people in your household. Here are some USA Cycling guidelines about riding during Covid. Only photos showing appropriate Covid-safe behavior (masks, distance, etc) will be shared on Ciclismo Classico social media.
