2024 Holiday Cheers

Long Ride

To the music of “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson

 Just hear those bike bells ring-a-ling

Randos mingle-ing too

Come on it’s lovely weather

for a long ride together with you

 

Outside the sun is shining

still some are whining on cue

Come on it’s lovely weather

for a long ride together with you

 

Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, let’s roll

Head to the control

We set two hundred fifty miles our goal

 

Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, don’t stop

Let the hammer drop

We’re riding along 

feeling strong

as we’re climbing to the top

 

 

 

Our ears are nicely frozen

on the ride we’ve chosen to do

Just like those birds of a feather

as we pace-line together with you

 

Let’s take that road before us

the joy that’s for us renewed

Let’s ride in lovely weather

on a long ride together with you

 

We’ll have cappuccino at the cafe while we rest

Our brevet continues on as we remain unstressed

 

 

As we're pedaling along some hammer on without a single stop

On their Stravas all the kudos they will swap! Swap, swap, swap!

 

There's a happy feeling all who ride cannot deny,

When our Garmins count the miles, and time is passing by

 

 

At the end we’ll gobble up real food and guzzle down each beer

With friends all around, we relax and recount the memories we hold dear

 

 

Just see our wheels go spin-nering faces grin-nering too

Come on it’s lovely weather for a long ride together with you

 

Let’s take that road before us The joy that’s for us renewed

Let’s go and ride together

regardless of the weather or mood

May you be blessed with no flats on any ride

And your Garmins or Wahoos always navigate without fail
