The event is presented by Material Things Artisan Market on the Woodstock Square Historic District to support our local community organizations—CASA of McHenry County, Live4Lali, Woodstock Pride, Illinois Migrant Council, Stairway to Prosperity, The Break, and Compassion 4 Campers by purchasing colored light strings that correspond with each organization. All proceeds go to them. Each string is $9.00

You can sign up to ride with the organization of your choice and solicit sponsors for your participation.

The ride route wends its way through the neighborhood streets of Woodstock beginning and ending at the Square.  It is not a race or competition, just a pleasant ride.  There will be musical entertainment on the bandstand as riders and walkers return to the Square.

Light strings can be purchased at Material Things, 114 W. Calhoun Street, directly from benefiting organization, or on-line And check out the Facebook event.
