I was thinking of planning the next Kidical Mass Arlington ride, which could be a holiday lights ride in December. Yay. I thought I'd start a general thread, in case others want to discuss non-kidical lights rides.

But I'll start with KM-A: should we do a holiday lights ride BEFORE the holidays this year? The obvious options seem to be the evening of Saturdays, Dec. 6, 13 or 20 or Sundays, Dec. 7, 14 or 21. If we're up for a longer, hillier ride, we could end at Westover Beer Garden for S'Mores...

Yes please

How about the 6th or 7th please?

KMA would be fine

Hmmmm, maybe Sunday night. Saturday is looking to be rainy and is difficult scheduling for me... Let me look into it.

So the plague is going through my house, and while it will (hopefully) be gone by Sunday, I don't know when I could recon the lights ride. We could do something like last year, but (1) I dream of ending at Westover Beer Garden so we can do s'mores) but reversing that route is very uphill, and (2) I noticed some impressive lights in Lyon Village earlier this week, though I feel like all of our rides are in Ashton Heights/Lyon Park/Lyon Village. Plus I don't know where we'd end that's as cool as s'mores at Westover.

In other words, if someone can help design a route today, I'll do an official KM-A ride. I'd also be up for an unofficial light scouting ride this Sunday night, then an official ride on, say, the 20th...

Bonus points if the route goes past this house on 26th Street South in Aurora Highlands:

This is too far for a KMA ride, but I had an event last night at Meadowood Botanical Gardens in Vienna and got to see all their pretty lights. A Vienna loop off the W&OD using the new Meadowood connector might be a fun event for adults, bigger kids or a KM - western Fairfax!
