Everyone knows Santa prefers to drive a sleigh for his work. But what ride does he prefer on his downtime? Based on how quickly he makes it around the world in one night in a sleigh with no top, we have to assume he is one of us and rides throughout the rest of the year. Since Santa tends to be secretive – I mean, no one really knows where his workshop is – we can only imagine what his bike would be like, but if we had to guess – we think it looks something like this:
If you want to bring some of this holiday cheer to your bike and become pseudo-Santa, we’d recommend:
Light-Up Jacket or Gear
Your bike doesn’t have to be the only thing dressed up – find some gear that compliments your ride, like a cool jacket.
Battery Operated Holiday Lights
Not all lights need to be plugged in, so grab some that can work off batteries and attach them around your bike. Be sure to secure the lights so they do not obstruct bike operation or wrap around the wheels.
What goes better with lights than garland? Plus it comes in all kinds of colors and textures – so you can customize your look. Keep garland away from the brake pedal, footrest, or lights.
Fake Christmas Tree or Yard Decorations
You could easily attach something to the back of your bike with bungee cords or rope. But remember, safety first! Make sure it is securely tied down tight, especially if you’re planning to really ride beyond low speeds.
Wreath or Bows
Either of these could attach to your handlebars or the back of your bike. Maybe put the wreath in front and the bow in the back.
Antlers & a Nose
You could create these yourself or there are kits designed specifically to go on your bike.
If you want to take your festive spirit to another level – you could make an entire sleigh to go around your bike or to tow behind it. Imagine how excited people would be to see you riding around town. Follow all traffic laws, safety regulations, and avoid major roads if you choose to attach a sleigh.
Once you’ve got your sleigh all ready to go – what better way to round it out than by dressing up as Old Saint Nick himself. Remember: even Santa needs safety gear with his traditional red suit!
Whether you’re on Santa’s nice list or not, CycleTrader.com has the bike on your wishlist.
