    Question Anyone doing a Thanksgiving ride?

    It's sort of been a tradition for me for a long time. Although in my younger years I may have taken off for 40 or 50 miles, I think it will probably only be my 12 round trip down to the beach and back.

    Nevertheless, ride on Thanksgiving!

    I'm in the process of convincing my wife to do a 10-mile ride with me tomorrow. If she doesn't go, I will. :-)

    Too much cooking and family stuff. Tomorrow we spend the day at the renaissance festival. Maybe Saturday.

    Ended up doing a pre-turkey 13-mile ride in the morning. It was very pleasant.

    Maybe tomorrow, if it gets above freezing. Have to put new tubes and tires on the Electra, thinking white sidewalls. Might look for some wild turkeys, though.

    I'm thinking of going for the metric century this weekend, would require a loop all the way to Long Beach so I want to make sure I have enough time before it gets dark on me. Just did a 15mi. ride in the burbs.

    I rode today again - for about 13 miles. Needed more than that to burn all the excess calories I stored yesterday, but it was raining and getting cold.

    I went for a 10.5 mile walk on Turkey Day Morning. Started at 6:30AM and it was COLD, 10degree wind chills! Was great though.
