Celebrating 'roll' models and holidays
Heights Bicycle Coalition (HBC) will celebrate Roll Models and Holidays on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 7 p.m., at Nighttown (12383 Cedar Road, Cleveland Heights).
The Heights community has dedicated and capable bicycle commuters. At this event, Heights bikers will talk about why they commute by bicycle and how they make it happen. The program will also provide information about year-round commuting gear and strategies to make bike commuting fun and rewarding.
Concluding the evening is a sing-along to an updated version of "Jingle Bells."
This is an awards program, as well, and will recognize several cyclists who are real "roll" models. For details, visit HBC's website, www.bikesintheheights.org, and Facebook page. Light refreshments will be provided at the event, and there will be a cash bar.
