Holidays by Bike in North America
Santa Rampage, Xmas Trees on Bikes, Shopping and more!
The holidays are a great time for festivities on two wheels, it turns out. We know of plenty here in our back yard in New England, but our friends across North America have turned us on to plenty of other bike-themed happenings in their cities, too. We've collected many of them below for you, and we hope that your 2015 holiday season is a happy, healthy, and bikey one.
Xmas trees on bikes
Did you get your tree by bike? Bikabout ambassadors and ModaCity founders, Melissa and Chris Bruntlett, want a picture of the festive occasion! Share the image with them via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or e-mail.
How the hell do I bike with a tree?

Shopping local in Milwaukee is easy on a bike! Explore Milwaukee's small shop scene while making pitstops to grab a bite to eat, a coffee or a beer. Many Bublr Bikes stations are located along the way so you don't have to worry about bringing your own bike downtown.
Vancouver is a great place to discover by bicycle throughout our warm summers. However, the city lights up over the holiday season and hosts numerous activities and events to get you into the spirit of the season. For our family, it has become a tradition to bundle up and set out to any number of activities throughout Vancouver on bicycles. With a portable stereo on hand, we enjoy the twinkling lights and get into the Christmas spirit while listening to some of our favourite Indie Christmas songs.
Vancouver boasts lots of shopping hot spots for tourists and locals alike. For the more discerning shopper, some of the most unique and local boutiques are found in Gastown and along the stretch of South Main, otherwise known as SoMa and Little Mountain. Main Street is also THE PLACE for vintage lovers, with more second hand stores than anywhere else in the city.
