Work Off That Turkey
Do you just lie on the couch all weekend after Thanksgiving is over? Not this year! Washington Bikes wants you to join them to work off the turkey, stuffing and gravy. After you
burn some calories in the cold, ride organizers will refuel you with hot cider and
swap tips and stories about cold-weather riding.
Date: Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014
Location: Meet at the Rotary Fountain, Riverfront Park
Cost: $20 in advance or at the ride (arrive by 12:45 if you aren't
pre-registered; they can take cash, check, or credit card). Ride
registration is a tax-deductible donation to Washington Bikes, your statewide
voice for better bicycling.
