Turkey Day Ride

The ride up South Mountain on Thanksgiving Day will start at AJ's near Central and Camelback at 6:30 a.m. There is less publicity about it this year in order to keep the group from becoming too large. Riders are expected to carry a small stone in their jersey pocket and leave it on the mountain in an attempt to reverse erosion. There may also be a small donation requested for hot chocolate and donuts.

The Arizona Bicycle Club will be riding for sure on Thanksgiving, starting from Granada Park at 20th Street and Maryland at 7:30 a.m. The Club rides in five different speed groups. Contrary to the usual practice, there is no official breakfast destination for this ride, but the Swifties/Pacers I group will probably find a place for coffee and perhaps a bite to eat. -- Jack Quinn

Jerseys a go?

I would say that the jerseys are a go. We received a total of 25 responses to the question of whether people would buy a Geezer jersey. One of the responses was for two people, so that represents 26 jerseys.

Hollis Philips is the head jersey Geezer. Errr... I mean he is the one who has agreed to get this jersey program going, and he is encouraged by the response. I'll let you know more when I learn more. -- Jack Quinn
