Santa is coming to town for an early visit on Dec. 11, and he’ll be coming to Penticton in style with his own bicycle.
The Penticton and Area Cycling Association has invited Jolly Saint Nick down to Penticton to take advantage of the city’s cycling paths and get in some pre-Christmas training.
“We had been hearing rumours of someone in a large, red suit, with white highlights, using our new Lake-to-Lake Bike Route for some late night training,” said Debbie Ziegler, PACA’s membership director. “And then a few weeks ago we received a new membership application from a Saint Nicholas.”
Thanks to his membership, and with Santa’s support, PACA will be hosting their first Cycling with Santa Ride on Dec. 11.
Meet up with PACA and Santa at Gyro Park at 1 p.m. with your bikes, scooters, skateboards – decorations are highly recommended.
From there, everyone is invited to go for a casual ride with Santa through Penticton and back to Gyro Park where there will be socially distanced photos with Santa by donation. Cash donations are preferred, but food donations will also be welcomed.
All of the donations go to support Foundry Penticton and the youth in the community.
