Giving Thanks Ride

I am riding Thanksgiving morning, giving thanks to God for my health to ride, and for the friends I have met as a member of Spokes N' Jokes. Join me if you can. This will be a 20 mile there and back ride. We will head north on the bike trail and go to the Mastic Picnic Area. With the cooler weather the stealheaders will be in the river. Also, I'm sure there will be a few Turkey Bowls going on along the way. Hey, maybe we will see a wild turkey. One of the lucky ones who dodged the oven. So let's burn a few calories before we stuff ourselves later in the afternoon. I will ride rain or shine. Snow? Yuk! I will cancel if it snows.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    This was a great way to spend Thanksgiving morning. The tailgate party at the start was a nice idea. Special thanks to Ron for chocolate covered bacon and Moses for the Spanish coffee. Yum!

    What a wonderful & most special way to start off the holiday season with some of the best people in SNJ'S! Thank you Ron D. for hosting the event, bringing it all together so nicely, and the morning prayer to remind us all of our blessings we share together as a group and as indiviuals. Kudos! :-)

    Actually I was thinking of riding more than 20. I will do the there and back for 20 and then keep going south for another 10 or 20. It's going to be a great cycling morning.

    It's cool that you guys are making this morning ride. I will be at the lot about 8:30. I am going to dip some stuff in chocolate and plan to bring a couple of thermos' of coffee to warm you up before the ride. I may need help with the coffee since the group is growing. If a couple of folks could bring a thermos full that would be great.
