Despite the cold, winter is a great time of year to get out and explore San Antonio – especially when the 3rd annual Light Up San Antonio holiday contest is in full swing. Every year San Antonians invest in dressing downtown in lights, lights, and now more LED lights.

We invite you to join us for a special treat to complete the holiday atmosphere for our next Something Monday social, casual bike ride. We’ll ride through downtown San Antonio, enjoy all the decorations along the way and be greeted at Main Plaza with carols from some of the finest voices in San Antonio, The AcaBellas, a student-run, all-female a cappella group from Trinity University.

We will depart at 6 p.m. from the San Antonio B-Cycle station across from The Liberty Bar (1111 South Alamo) and make our way through downtown, passing Alamo Plaza, cruise down Houston Street and North Main Avenue, to Main Plaza where The AcaBellas will sing favorite holiday carols – with a few modern hits thrown in the mix.

Even if you’re not the bike-riding type, we won’t hold a grudge if you show up on foot. Feel free to meet us at Main Plaza – the music will start at 6:30 p.m.

The ride is two miles from Southtown to Main Plaza and will take no more than 30 minutes. Make sure to bring bike lights for safely and city ordinance (and why not for decoration?).

Afterwards, we’ll ride back to the Liberty Bar, a warm place for friends old and new to celebrate another Monday in San Antonio.
