Turkey Day Ride….Sadly, due to reasons totally within my control I have missed many of the recent ZRCT sanctioned events….and when I woke up on Thursday morning to the cold wet residue of Wednesday nights winterish storm, I was ready to add the T-day ride to my list….but, I made a commitment to my good friend “Robby” who was in town from Seattle just to do the ride, so there was no way I could miss this one… Unfortunately “Robby” had another idea of what commitment meant and totally bailed! Fortunately for me there were plenty of dedicated ZRCT riders and countless others who showed true grit and completed the 20 mile 3 hour loop on the misty, wet and muddy mountaintop…Rick (Java Hut) and Darin (Divine electric) produced excellent Irish coffee to warm our souls as we finished the climb….Healthy Kate had food and cold 21st A beer waiting at the bottom of the hill…Humble and sincere thank you to each of you! Congrats to all those who participated and finished the 2011 wet, muddy and cold Turkey Day ride. Special thanks to everyone who honored the Marin conservation leagues request to avoid the San Anselmo Creek and sparing the migrating salmon population.
These amazing fish are able to fight their way up this rocky dry creek bed and return to their spawning ground, what would we do without the efforts of the Marin Conservation League. So much to give thanks for this holiday season…..
