MASON CITY, Iowa- You don’t see too many bicycles decorated in Christmas lights and garland, but that is exactly what happened for the first Jingle Ride in Mason City.
The ride started at Ranchero Gardens on 2nd St. NW and headed South to the Meredith Wilson Footbridge. It went through River Heights Dr. and past East Park. They then made their way back to the park for a total of around six miles.
Those who coordinated the ride hope to try and raise awareness for two different causes they see in the North Iowa Area: affordable biking and feeding the hungry.
“I think that cycling, as a sport, is not widely accessible to a lot,” says Max Weaver Jr., the event coordinator. “I think with donations things like that it elevates some of the costs to get these kids to be a part of it.”
