Saturday marked the 32nd Annual Festivus Ride here in Columbus, Ohio. It was cold as hell but we did it. I was very happy about this event for a couple reasons: First – I’ve been so UNholiday as there are so many people grieving. My heart just continues to break for the families in CT as I think of them, everyday. This holiday is the first holiday that I’ve really REALIZED that its ‘people’ that mean the absolute most to me. I don’t want ‘things.’ I want people who make me feel good to surround me and love me. Festivus did just this. Second – the sun joined us for our ride. We began once again at Goodale Park and slowly made our way to Hal n Als. Festive bicycles decorated and wonderful outfits were worn. Me – I rocked Velour. I brought back the ‘Italian Mall Walker.’
We ended at Hal n Als and warmed up before hitting the outdoors to participate in the ever popular – HUFFY TOSS. The fire pit was roaring and Tatoheads Food Truck kept our belly’s full.
Inside, we had an ugly sweater contest followed by mad postings on the Grievance board and if you stayed later into the evening, a few of us had our own little dance party.
Thank you to ALL who came out and joined us. Thanks to Hal n Als and Tatoheads for booze and noms.
See you all next year!
Enjoy the photos and Happy Holidays.
Be safe and keep riding.
