HOLIDAY LIGHTS RIDE
Saturday, December 13 at 7:00 PM
Celebrate the holidays with us on Saturday, December 13. The Holiday Lights Ride is a fun, family-friendly bike ride through Haggin Oaks, where we enjoy some of the best holiday lights displays in Bakersfield. Meet at the fountain in front of the Marketplace. Arrive a little early to make sure your bike is ready to ride. We encourage you to decorate your bike and dress for the occasion!
Be sure to wear a helmet and equip your bike with lights. Wear layers for a comfortable ride. Due to anticipated high volume of riders, we want to emphasize common courtesy, safety, and most of all fun.
Save the date! We will still have a December full moon ride (Saturday, December 6). Details and an event flyer will be available soon, so please check back frequently.
RIDE YOUR BIKE TO THE LIBRARY
The Kern County Library encourages the community to ride to the library by bike.
