The BRIGHT RIde
In December 2011, Cincinnati bicycle riders created a visual spectacle of serendipitous art with the first ever BRIGHT Ride. We dressed up ourselves and our bikes in our holiday best.
We had lights (some provided by ArtsWave) and wreathes on bikes -- even a tiny lit-up tree on a rack. We saw lots of red clothing, fancy hats and helmets, and Bicycle Santa with his sleigh rode along.
Bicycle Santa counted 63 helpers! We rode about 10 miles -- including right past the celebration and tree on Fountain Square to Over-the-Rhine where the annual Light Up OTR events were taking place.
Coffee Emporium sponsored a warm-up stop and hot chocolate at the start too. Reser Bicycles donated front and rear lights and Mobo Bicycle Coop opened it's doors for those who wanted to "dress up" together. Lots of smiles -- on riders and watchers.
