South Pasadena Holiday Ride- TOYS AND MITTENS- Sat. Dec. 13
- C.I.C.L.E. HOLIDAY TOYS & MITTENS RIDE
The Dec. 13 holiday bike ride will collect donations of toys and warm
clothing to benefit families in need through Hathaway-Sycamore Family
C.I.C.L.E.'s third-annual Holiday Toys & Mittens Ride will take
participants on a festive community bicycle ride that will gather
toys and warm clothing from South Pasadena donation centers for
families served by Hathaway-Sycamores Family Services. Ride
participants are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy or articles
of warm clothing to be distributed in time for the holidays to
families in need.
This relaxed and family-friendly ride meets at the Mission Street
Metro Gold Line Station (905 Meridian Ave., South Pasadena, 91030) on
Saturday, Dec. 13 at 11 a.m. and departs promptly at 11:30 a.m.
Participants are encouraged to come dressed in their finest holiday
duds with decorated bicycles (and are thus eligible to enter a raffle
drawing to win prizes).
Holiday tunes played from C.I.C.L.E.'s on-board sound system will
fill the air as we wind through scenic South Pasadena on a short five-
mile ride that will make stops at pre-placed collection boxes to
retrieve donations with cargo bikes and bike trailers. People that
cannot attend the ride may deliver their donation(s) to these
participating merchants through December 12.
