Ho, Ho, Hold on to Those Handlebars for 11th Annual Santa Ride in Honor of Warren Bruno Dec. 15
Wear one of those blinky red Rudolph noses, strap elf ears on your bike helmet and don some festive apparel before setting off on this social cycling cruise through the Highlands, Inman Park, downtown Atlanta, Midtown, Ansley Park and Piedmont Park. On Thursday, Dec. 15, the 11th annual Santa Ride in honor of the late Warren Bruno wheels out from the avid cyclist’s beloved Atkins Park Restaurant & Bar in Virginia-Highland and spins through 10 miles of Bruno’s favorite neighborhoods. Costume contest and cups o’ cheer are all part of this holiday season tradition. Best costume (voted on by Santa Ride participants) will be crowned with the coveted Warren Bruno holiday bike. Congregate at Atkins Park at 5 p.m. and set out to “sleigh” the streets at 6 p.m. Relax and be jolly – this is not a race – but it is a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Consider donating at least $25; 100 percent of proceeds go toward efforts to fight and cure the cancer that eventually took the life of cheer-champ Warren Bruno.
