If you missed out on last week’s Holiday Lights Run, you’re in luck: Here’s another opportunity to peep South Philly’s festive light displays, this time from atop two wheels. 

On Wednesday, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is organizing a DIY bike tour of South Philly’s holiday lights. RSVP for the event, and they’ll send you a seven-mile route that’ll take you past some of the best displays. They suggest gathering a group and leaving by 5 p.m., so you can cover the distance at a leisurely pace. The point is to be done the ride by 7 and head to SouthHouse (13th and Shunk streets) for an afterparty with BCGP. A portion of the proceeds from the night’s sales will be donated to the Bicycle Coaltion.

Note that this is a DIY ride, meaning Coalition staff will not be leading groups. The RSVP gets you a cue sheet for the route, so you can go at your own pace.

All the info you need is here.
