    Great thread start.

    The key to Turkey Ride is growing it and sharing.

    So the question is: What are you bringing to share? Who are you bringing up there new to share the experience.

    My bud Ryan from NYC. He's a New York State Trooper...(Chips to all of us California folk) He's done Kennedy, Jones, DogMeat, and Demo (including Braille as a virgin) and still, still keeps coming back to NorCal. We're gonna bring ...turkey, no, pig, no, (that's the PhilliMafia's job) just some desserts and alcohol.

    See y'all at the top! I will again stand at the top; of the final climb and cheer you all on. Maybe Menso can bring Vodak? (Fark reference)

    Cheers

    2010 was my first year... I tried to bring my daughter but that year was really cold and she bailed out on me when she saw how cold it was... I was out of town last year and missed it.

    I'm "in" this year and hope to get my daughter up the hill with me (I hope its warmer then the last time she tried!).

    Can someone remind me, what time does it start?

    Dave,
    2010 shouldn't be mentioned. It was 28 degree at start time, (8:am) That's conservative, at best. I rode from my house to Los Gatos, about 25 mins. and was frozen by the time I got there.
    It will not be that cold this year. Hopefully. It was just a fluke, come on down...
    Cheers
    Good ride, but hated that morning. Maybe LP can comment on the temperature that morning...stoopid cold. Should be much warmer this year. Hopefully....

    Will be there hopefully with a few newbies. I will bring a turkey pie. Any recommendation as to how I could carry the pie up the mountain without getting it smashed in my camelpak?

    Meet IFO Summit Cycles, downtown Los Gatos, 8am. Actually be there before that, the ride rolls about 8am. Up Kennedy Rd. to the trailhead, then up the hill. Hang out on top for as long as you want. I'm usually out of there by 10am, but many just stay up and party. It'll either be very cold, dry, wet, moderate, possibly in between, completely cloudy, with heavy fog and bright sunshine. Be prepared!

    Go down the same way, or down the backside (Dogmeat, into Lexington, up Jones, and out to downtown Los Gatos.

    Best bet is to layer. You're going to climb hard for 45mins - 1 hour, then stop at the top. So you're going to be wet. Consider that for the ride down where wet ='s very cold.

    Last year it was warmish at the top (high 50's) Year before it was several degrees below freezing at 8am. Be prepared! Eat pig and bird, drink responsibly, pack everything out, and have fun!

    I didn't make it last year, but the year before was FAH-REEZING. Especially on the downhills. Burr!
