Event Details Images

We're expecting hundreds of Santas, snowmen, elves and reindeer riding bikes covered in festive decorations - why not come and watch the ride and enjoy some summer festivities?

If coming along to spectate, make sure you arrive in plenty of time and give us all a wave as we ride past.

If you intend to come to the start or finish, parking will be very limited due to the large number of bikes we're expecting. Let the marshals know that you're there to see the ride and please follow their directions.

Remember to share any pictures or videos you take of the ride - we'd love to see them. You can send them to our Facebook page or Tweet them to @santasonabike
