Bikes at The Bike Lane at Reston Town CenterCyclists in festive holiday attire are scheduled to pedal down the W&OD trail to the Reston Town Center’s Christmas tree this weekend.

A “Jingle Bell Family Ride” is planned for Saturday, Dec. 10, at 11 a.m., according to Kidical Mass Reston, the event’s organizers.

Bike riders are instructed to meet at the YMCA Fairfax County Reston, located at 12196 Sunset Hills Road.

“Get in the holiday spirit and join us for some festive family fun!” a Facebook event post reads. “Wear your warmest Christmas attire and listen to sounds of the season as we ride along the W&OD to the Reston Town Center Christmas tree.”

Participants will get free hot chocolate after the bike ride.

Though kids will need to bring their own bikes, adults can rent Bikeshare bikes at no charge, organizers said. All cyclists under 15 are legally required to wear a helmet.
