Holiday Lights Bike Ride!

Is it a ride to see the holiday lights, or a ride with holiday lights on your bike?


We’ll meet at Lake Eola Park along Eola Drive near the Civil War memorial, and ride for about an hour-and-a-half or so, ogling at decorated houses and our own manicly-flashing selves. Afterward we hang out at the park with a table full of drinks and snacks. Carol & Mighk will provide the (weather-appropriate) drinks and cups; you bring goodies for all to share.

Date: Sunday, December 20

Start Time: we roll out at 6 PM

Length: about an hour-and-a-half of riding

Equipment: front & rear lights are required; other lights encouraged (solar-recharged LED units are now available; perfect for the bike); helmets are a good idea

Welcome Baby Wood!

Congratulations to James and Jo Wood, who welcomed their little angel, Gwen Ruth, into the world on Sunday, November 1, at 7:57 am. James was one of our first Retro employees, and while he and Jo moved back to England last year, you can see he is still doing his job of promoting the bike shop. Mom and baby are doing fine, and Dad is so proud!
