I can’t think of a better cycling advocate this time of year than jolly old St. Nick.
Floyd Landis Lance Armstrong might be a familiar figure in the US, but in Bulgaria, it’s all about Santa. And not only is Santa showing up on his bike, but he’s giving people rides too. The whole event came about through the efforts of an association called BikEvolution, which is a group of cyclists and other members of non-governmental organizations with a goal of protecting the rights and interests of cyclists. Basically, they’re like critical mass, but without all the hooligans, and they actually accomplish something. This event should appeal to adults and kids of all ages.
I wonder how Santa rolls?
