If this is Wednesday, we are riding TONIGHT. We are pleased to let everyone know that for the 54th Annual nighttime holiday parade 2019. They got 3rd place “Best of Show”. ￼This award came as a pleasant surprise as this group always goes way out to meet the theme of the parade, this year it was the roaring 20s, last year it was the toy soldiers for the Nutcracker and prior to that it was the Grinch who stole Christmas. What is unique about the Thursday Night Peddlers riding on Wednesday, each holiday season they cycle and carol Lake Worth Beach’s new residence and community￼￼.
They are the only group in the United States to do this, to the delight of the community and are now in their 8th year of riding as a leisure group, enjoying paradise. Lake Worth Beach is flat, about every street has bike lanes, thanks to the CRA. Accepting this award presented from Leisure Services are Tina Chiodo a frequent rider and AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt the founder of this group. ““We are A non-spandex group and every one with a bike in Lake Worth Beach and beyond regardless of age is always welcome to ride with us every Wednesday”. They meet 6:15 and depart 6:30 from the Gulfstream hotel each Wednesday. Did I mention they have had the honor of leading the parade. It is a non membership group so depending on what life has to offer there could be upwards 25 riding or as few as five.
