It's just around the corner! So what is everyone doing for Thanksgiving? Any group rides going on? I want to do a ride somewhere, but seeing what is happening and therefore where I can tag along.

More info? I guess this is a shuttle run, but does the tandem pickup at the "finish" line? What time does it usually end?

There is a Wawayanda Ride on Thanksgiving at 8:30. We do it every year. Lots of people typically show up and we break it up into manageable groups. It's a lot of fun.

Where do you start from? Boathouse parking lot?

Yes, the boathouse parking lot.

Some groups may start congregating at 8:00. They usually just keep rollong in and may still be gathering up by 9:00 for late groups. 3 or 4 clubs, families with kids, national and world champions, and one year an olympic gold medalist showed up. Does anyone know who that was?? As many as 60 people one year. We try to keep the groups under 15, but we all seem to morph together at some point.

It's a great ride! I give it a :):):):):)

Shuttle leaves from finish. Drive up Split Rock road get "dumped" on Charlottesburg Rd. Mileage is only around 7 or 8 miles (1 - 1 1/2 on the road). Total time is usually in the 1:30 to 1:45 area. I think this our 22nd year (my 21st) doing this ride. If anyone gets tired - then can tie onto my seat post.

Hi. I read that the wawayanda thanksgiving ride leaves from the boathouse. i have never been to waway. is that easy to find? is there an address or a google map link to the boathouse? also, how long does the thanksgiving ride usually take? i would love to join and see waway with some folks who know it, and who know how to avoid bears ;)
