DECEMBER 3, 2011

The City of Cedar Rapids Bicycle Advisory Committee and Bike Ambassadors will have a lighted bicycles parade entry in the Holiday Delight Parade on Saturday Dec. 3, 2011.

Everyone is welcome to join us in our parade entry. Use lots of lights and classic holiday elements to light up your bike and yourself. (No Santa characters are allowed, except the official Santa on the last float in the parade.)

Last year we had over 50 lighted bikes of all types, and won first place for best use of light. Email if you have questions.

Meet in front of Coopacabana at the corner of 4th Avenue and 6th Street SE at 5:30 pm Saturday December 3, 2011. Parade starts at 6:00 pm.
