Heard rumor of some Pilgrims trying to land their boat out by Provincetown, but anti-illegal-immigration zealots drove them away.
You got good weather up there Scott? Kind of cold and dark grey here, but they say the sun is coming. Happy T-day. Roast duckling for me. Julia Childs recipe.

Great day for a ride! I was out for 2 hours and was passed by maybe a dozen cars. Granted it is 40 with a stiff wind from the SSW and overcast but it is all worth it without any cagers on the road.

No rumor! I bunch of them came over the fence at what's now known as "First Encounter Beach" in Eastham. The locals drove them back with a hail of arrows and sent them packing.

My family crossed over ten years later, mmmmm, I wonder if I should be worried.

Perfectly clear up here, it's coming your way.

A foot of snow yesterday pretty much killed my Thanksgiving morning ride. AND the drive chain on the snow blower snapped this morning.
Off to the in-laws to eat their food and drink their booze.

I am thankful for seat posts and stems that are not stuck, rides without flats, bikes with lugs (especially the old ones), simplex retrofriction shifters, and all the good humor and shared knowledge on this site. Happy Thanksgiving all!

What are you thankful for?

Last night crust dough. This morning was pie duty. Then cranberry sauce.

Ride after meal. Rain predicted is not here, that's a good thing.

Snow's melting!

Wind's blowing from the south briskly.

60 degrees here on Thanksgiving.

Just got back from our annual ride.

Bring on the chow.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving C&V.

I seem to manage to get sick every thanksgiving, though the rest of the year usually finds me pretty healthy!

Time to put the studded tires on and be ready for winter!

Mine landed in Newburyport, MA about that same time as yours. We might be cousins! About 1631ish.

We were treated to 10" of some of the wettest heavest white stuff I've seen. Thankfully my snow blower held up. Kept me off the bike this morning as well.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Pretty weather here in central Alabama. I should be able to get in a quick ride this afternoon.
Best Wishes!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone

I'm very thankful for the family, friends, and relationships that have enhanced my 2011. I'm wrapping up the year with a ton of (much needed) positive momentum for 2012, and I am very grateful for that.

Great beginning to Thanksgiving!

I spent most of the morning restoring a Schwinn Varsity. Thanks to the bicycle gods!
