The Trail House is our local coffee shop / brew pub / bike shop near the Annadel mountain bike trails. Lots of serious mountain bikers hang there. Serious I’m not, but I’ve been known to frequent the joint with Jeff and/or Cap’n Will. This year the Trail House sponsored its Second Annual Lighted Bicycle Parade, about which I was initially alerted by our neighbors when I spotted their little boys riding bikes adorned with Christmas lights. I checked the Trail House website and learned the parade would pedal from its parking lot to the nearby neighborhood renowned — with good reason — as Christmas Tree Lane.
My ace support crew wanted me to attend a holiday party with her this evening, but how could I possibly do that when the alternative was a bicycle parade?
