The ride will start at Travers Park, at 34th Avenue and 78th Street, at 9 a.m. on Dec. 6. Participants will meet at the park and bike along 34th Avenue to Junction Boulevard, before riding back to the park.

Event organizers will hand out free helmets at 9 a.m. and there will be treats for children at the end of the ride.

People can register for the event and learn more here.

Attendees are encouraged to dress in their best Christmas-themed costumes. However, attendees should not dress as Santa.
