Susan and I host our women’s riding group every year at this time — the Saturday before Thanksgiving. There are some vegetarians in our group so I have dubbed this get together “Unturkey Thanksgiving”. I cook vegetarian chili and corn bread and everyone else brings sides and desserts of their choice. It is a great group and a fun start to the Holiday Season.
We had 17 of us this year, and about half of them rode the route I prepared, the other half opted to join Susan on our local trail for a hike. On the way each group stopped to drop off a food item or two there they were asked to bring and there we did.
A few of us getting unloading the goods…
The ride was glorious in full sun, blue sky and upper 40 to lower 50 degrees. We had some hills on our ride and we regathered at the top of any of them to be sure not to lose anyone.
I know I have posted a photo of two of the beach area in the past, but cannot help myself from posting another one from this ride.
My plan is to have CRANKSGIVING be a part of this annual ride each year. Great idea and almost everyone did bring something to give. This is a new addition this year so I am hoping everyone will be on board next time.
We returned home for that warming chili and all the goodies that surrounded it, had some good socializing time, our annual Wii bowling tournament and a bit of football to watch the Washington Huskies win their game.
A great day!
