Turkey Day, Work up an Appetite!

  • November 22, 2012 · 9:30 AM

Work up an appetite on a ride before that big turkey dinner!

Distance: ~40 mi depending on chosen route.
Climbing: ~3500 ft
Pace: 18'ish on flats
Sweep: No, but we'll regroup at hill tops and key turns
Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1921493

Riding rain or shine!  If raining, please have a rear fender with good coverage so that the folks behind you don't get road spray'ed.  If you need a good set of fenders that will work with race bikes (minimal clearance, no eyelets, etc.) the SKS RaceBlade Long fender works great.  Most shops should be able to order it, but you should do that ASAP.  All of my wet rides will require them.

Helmet required!  Please bring snacks, water, money for a stop at Starbucks for coffee, stuff to fix a flat, etc.  Please leave TT bikes, aero bars, and music players at home.

Rolling from the Fish Hatchery at 9:30 or my place in Rancho at 9 for an extra 17mi.

Hope to see you!

    Just about the perfect distance and the perfect pace. Add on top of that that the weather was beautiful, which made it an ideal way to spend my Thanksgiving morning. Thanks for leading us Joel, and thanks to all the other riders that came out today.

    Thanks Joel, I enjoyed that, good group and route. I got 38 miles and can now eat and justify my ravenous hunger:) Thank you Diana for the Pumpkin bread, much appreciated.

    Diana, I assume you and John will either meet at my place or down at Hagan Park?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
