Santa has traded in his sleigh for a bicycle.
The Queens Bike Initiative is leading its second annual “Santa Ride” around Jackson Heights and East Elmhurst this weekend and is inviting families to follow Santa Claus around the neighborhood on a kid-friendly bike ride.
The ride will begin and end at Travers Park on 34th Avenue, running from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday. There will be holiday themed activities along the way, and participants are encouraged to come in “Santa-inspired wear,” and to bring water and a bike lock for stops along the way.
There will be a police escort for the ride to ensure the event is safe for kids to participate.
If it rains on Saturday, the ride will be rescheduled to Sunday.
