    Default Bicycle Fun Club: Holiday lights at the Mormon Temple on December 9

    When: Sunday, December 9.

    Where: Meet at Dog Tag Bakery in Georgetown (3206 Grace St. NW) at 4:00 if you want coffee. We'll roll out at 4:30 p.m. and ride about 12.6 miles to the Mormon Temple, https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28970899. After seeing the lights, we'll retrace our route, stopping in Bethesda for drinks or snacks if people feel so inclined.

    What to bring: A lock and good lights. The Capital Crescent Trail and Beach Drive are not well-lit.

    Who: Anyone who wants to see what the temple grounds look like when decorated with over 650,000 lights. Social pace (12-15 mph), no drop.

    Here are a few pics from two years ago:

    I will put slightly less impressive lights on my bike for this ride. Thanks, Komo!

    Weather update: I'm keeping an eye on the snowstorm that might come through on Sunday. If we need to cancel for weather reasons, I'll post here no later than 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. If I don't post anything, the ride will proceed as planned.

    If the ride's a go, it's going to be a chilly one -- particularly when we're walking around the grounds. I recommend bringing an extra jacket for the off-the-bike time.

    See you on Sunday, hopefully!

    I noted this is going on right near the starting point:

    Although it does not light up until 5pm, by which time we will be on our way, I guess.

    I went to Glow with Bobco a few years ago and it was pretty good.

    Should still be lit up on the way back, though. It usually is pretty good.

    Just confirming that I'm still planning to proceed with the ride. See you at 4.

    Although I won't have time to stop at Georgetown Glow on the way back today, I'm happy to organize another ride to see Glow (and maybe some of the other temporary light exhibitions in the city) later. But I won't have time for that until the week between Christmas and New Year. If anyone else wants to organize a Georgetown Glow ride before then, go for it!
