Organizers in LA expect around 500 Santas; SF will have 3 Santacons which will merge and converge over the event with at least 1000 Santas participating. Portland regularly hosts 3,000-5,000 Santas.

In Ventucky, we will hold a second bike riding Santacon Sunday December 20 at 12:30pm–that’s 12/20 at 12:30! We’ll ride from San Jon Road and the beach bike path to the Ventura Harbor for some shenanigans then ride north to downtown for some dancing and more cacophonous activity.

Learn how to prepare for a Santacon here including links to Santacon Carols, how to make a Santa suit, and Santa’s Code of Conduct. Find a Santa Con near you here.

Tonight, bicyclists from all over L.A. County will descend on Downtown L.A. bearing toys to be collected and distributed to kids by a local charity like they do every year in an All City Toy Ride; this year the Midnight Ridazz will be assisted by the East L.A. woman’s shelter in giving out the toys.

Rides begin in EVERY corner of the city and converge at the Olvera St. Gazebo at 10 p.m. where the toys will be collected followed by a short ride around DTLA and a FREE AFTER-PARTY WITH TOY DONATIONS!
