This year’s Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride to benefit CYCLE Kids was a huge success! More than 100 festive, costumed riders enjoyed perfect weather on their ride from Arlington to Boston and back. The route featured a stop in Harvard Square to meet CYCLE Kids founder Julie Idlet and enjoy hot chocolate and cookies provided by the Harvard Square Business Association. HSBA Executive Director Denise Jillson was also on hand, personally serving cocoa. The riders sang some carols, fueled up, and continued on their merry way into Boston.
Ciclismo Classico generously donated all proceeds from the ride to CYCLE Kids. The $2500 will go directly towards furthering the CYCLE Kids mission to instill enduring healthy habits in kids through teaching bicycle skills. Thank you Lauren and Ciclismo Classico! It was blast and we can’t wait for next year!
