Happy Turkey Day....A ride after too much Pumpkin pie , a great idea? Not me..At work. Too quiet....Looking out plant fence, saw a pod of cyclists pedal by.I feel cheated.....I can't ride, unless I ride tonight..A beautiful Turkey day here...How about you..You have an excuse for No Turkey day ride?How many miles you get in..Most of you riding in sun or sleet...?
Proabably be eating turkey later tonght , After I get home..Always the trainer, but then the Moon is full...That nice riding conditions if you don't mind it slightly cool.

I am home from weekend from college, I was going to go for a ride today if severe thunderstorms wern't present....It's kinda wet too but its near 4pm and if I were going to go for a ride I'd leave early in the morning. It would be nice to go for a ride now but I am extremly excited to hop on my bike tomorrow

I had planned on biking to my friend's house for dinner, but thunderstorms put that idea to an end. I thought about going for a ride now that I am home, but now it is snowing the heaviest, wettest snow I have seen so far this season, so I guess it is an evening for staying in. I'm going to ride into work bright and early tomorrow morning though! (4am!!)

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving

Kat

Did my ride and then ate the turkey. Rode 55 miles. Climbed to the top of Mt. Hamilton which is the tallest peak (4,372-ft.) around here. Descended 2/3's of the way down and met the family at a county park where we had our turkey dinner. It was overcast in the valley but we climbed above the clouds about 1/3 of the way up and it was nice and sunny. You could see the snow-capped Sierra's way off to the east!

Wife and I went for lovely 3 mile walk around a local pond/lake this morning, then later in the day went for a 3 mile ride around the neighborhood, then another walk. Well, at least I got on the Mtn bike - but the rear tire was down to 20 lbs, so I pumped it up and will have to attend to that leak pretty soon! Beautiful day - low 50'sF.

Hey, 3 miles is better than nothing!

Snow headed here tomorrow and on and off through Monday.

...rode from my home to a friend's, fed the cats.
then downtown to another friend's, to feed that cat.
then crosstown to yet another place, where I filled up on turkey, fixins, and wine
rode uptown again to feed more cats, then back downtown and eventually, home
...did about 25 miles today, with some seriously chilly winds out there at 4am.

CH...Kings County is Manhattan ,right...Cats keep up your mileage..On Thanksgiving, probably a ride about Manhattan is a pretty easy thing...Streets ever deserted.

the part I came from is in brooklyn...I think Kings is the biggest county around here so I'm not sure if Manhattan falls into that. But yes, it was a nice hassle-free ride, except thru chinatown. it was twice as busy down there, mini-vans choking the streets with no less than 10 people in each!

Chmb...Once an employer stationed me about NYC for a month in 1991..We had a company home in Ft. Lee, NJ........I had thought Kings County was Manhattan and Queens was Brooklyn...? Anyway from my month in the NYC area..Can't imagine riding a biking on those busy boulvedards of Manhattan..But then,might be easiest way to get about...But the traffic I saw...Wow...Get on the 95 to Bronx, better have the car tuned up or you will be run over...
