If you want to witness thousands of Santas riding bicycles then I suggest heading to Wisconsin this weekend.

Wisconsin Does Things Their Own Way

Our neighbors to the north like to do things in their own way. I can completely appreciate that. Sometimes that can take them in a unique direction. Even when it comes to the holidays and Christmas. A perfect example is an event coming up this weekend in Milwaukee. It's the annual Santa Cycle Rampage. I can't picture it happening anywhere else but in Wisconsin.

What Is The Annual Santa Cycle Rampage In Milwaukee?

According to onmilwaukee.com,

Billed as the world's largest holiday-themed costume group bicycle ride for charity, the Santa Cycle Rampage returns on Saturday, Dec. 3 for its 18th year in support of the Wisconsin Bike Fed.


This is a Slow Roll-style, police-escorted, looped route, with speeds and spirits that should accommodate most riders of any age and skill level.
