Christmas Lights Ride Draws 150 in Seminole Tonight

Kudos to SWFBUD store Bicycle Outfitters in Seminole for putting on a Christmas Lights Bike Ride tonight. We gathered at Osceola High School and biked across Bryan Dairy Road into the Lights of Lake Park Estates to check out the holiday lights and donate a few bucks to the Gulfcoast Hospice. It was a ride of about 3 1/2 miles and we all enjoyed hot cocoa and cookies at about Mile 3.

Adam Beland, owner of Bicycle Outfitters, did a nice job pulling off the Christmas Lights Ride tonight. ABC Action News stopped by for some coverage and check out tonight's 11 PM newscast on Channel 28 for the bike ride report.

I'd say about 150 people of all bicycling backgrounds showed up on road bikes, recumbents, cruisers, fixed gears and trikes.
