    2018 Los Gatos Turkey Day Ride

    Meeting spot with parking is usually at Summit Bike shop in Los Gatos. Departure time is 8am.

    For hikers and riders who want to skip the road climb, they park at the top of Kennedy at 8:30 and take off from there.

    Key is to make it to the top and hang out for a couple hours.

    BRING ALL THE FOOD AND DRINK THAT YOU CAN SHARE.

    Who's attended before? Who's coming this year?

    If not coming, what's your excuse that 1500+ didn't have last year?? You'll be home by noon.

    My kid said high school buddies are flying home and doing this ride with him. I'm pretty stoked since it's his idea. No training, just ride up, cold-turkey.

    He's been through a lifetime of turkey rides and I think he values it.2018 Los Gatos Turkey Day Ride-img_1140.jpg

    I started going 5 years ago when I learned about this ride. I'll be there this year, but not sure what I'll be riding. Either the Les Fat or the Sentinel.

    This is an event not to miss, guys!

    I'm in this year. I've done quite a few of them but we've been out of town the last few thanksgivings...this year we'll be home and the thing I'm looking forward to the most is the turkey day ride.

    (and a shout out to AB!)

    Ok, I did a gofundme and we got over $600 for the roast pigs. Mostly SVMTB Sean donated.

    So now we have two roast pigs. And countless turkeys of course on the table and on the trail.

    ha ha... i don't think AQI is the problem here. Folks just don't want to get out of the comfort zone and commit.

    The key issue now is rain. But most will overcome that hopefuly.

    I'm hoping it rains to clear the air. I've done the T-day ride in rain with no problems. Just carry a waterproof pack and have some warmth for the top.

    Air quality will be the only gating factor for me.
