    Jacksonville's Wild Turkey Ride -- November 17

    Mark your calendars, it's just two months away.

    What: A checkpoint alleycat and scavenger hunt. (*Despite the name of the race, this is not a drinking race like the last one -- unless of course you want to ride it that way.)

    When: November 17 (registration between 2p and 345p; race/hunt at 4).

    Where: All over Jacksonville's beautiful downtown and adjacent neighborhoods (Riverside, Avondale, Murray Hill, Brooklyn, Springfield, San Marco, etc.)

    Why: The usual: Fun + prizes.

    Who: You, of course.



    With about 30 riders, we had a great turn-out for our Sunday Sixer and hope that even more riders make it out this time around.

    There will be an after party and plenty of boozing, and of course track and skid contests.

    More info to come -- as in which sponsors are on board and maybe even what kind of swag'll be up for the winning.

    OK, well, I applied, and as soon as I'm approved I'll be sure to post the info for the race.

    Sponsors so far:

    Crank Bros, Trackosaurs Rex, No Brakes ATL, and then some locally made prizes: a messenger bag and probably a pretty dope wheelset.

    And Pabst Blue Ribbon has just agreed to send out some swag.
