Bikes were all aglow in downtown Christiansted on Saturday night for the Loominate Bike Ride with Benny Demus. About 100 or more bike riders rode from David C. Canegata Recreational Center and Sports Complex to the police station located in Christiansted and back.

Families were welcomed to join and encouraged to wear their favorite costumes. All styles of bikes were welcomed, and you did not need a bicycle to participate. Bicycles, t-shirts, wrist bands, and toys were given away. Some bicycles were donated courtesy of the V.I. Department of Sports Parks and Recreation, Bon Manjer, DPMNM, and other local sponsors.
