Christmas light bike ride Sunday

Go green and get some exercise at the same time, as the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition presents its Christmas Lights Ride on Sunday.

Go green and get some exercise at the same time, as the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition presents its 14th annual Terry Van Fleet Memorial Christmas Lights Ride on Sunday.

This year, the roughly 20-kilometre road ride weaves its way through Saanich, starting from the First Church of the Nazarene, 4277 Quadra St. near Chatterton Way.

Stops will be made in areas of colourful lighting displays, and riders are encouraged to decorate their bikes with lights or other Christmas-related items.

Registration begins at 6 p.m. and the ride takes off at 6:30 p.m.

The round trip back to the church hall is expected to take about two hours.

The ride is held is memory of Terry Van Fleet, a cyclist who was hit by a truck and killed as he rode along Blanshard Street with full lights and reflectors.
