To the generous guys w/ the Margaritas up there –

The Los Gatos Turkey ride is annual tradition that has been going on for over 10 years. On Thanksgiving morning, cyclists go up the mountain from downtown Los Gatos. The mountain is steep at 2200 feet but the spirit and camaraderie is awesome. This year, mtbr and friends went big with several turkeys, roast pig, keg, and furniture.

----------------------------



Thank you!
Could not have been a nicer day!
What a great bunch of folks appeared on top of Kennedy this morning!
Wishing all of you, a great TG and holiday season! :)

Photos and Videos

I've setup a flickr group if anyone wants to see my photos of this event and add their own. I'm also uploading a video to youtube as we speak and will link it here when its up. This was my first time on this ride and it was amazing. I'll be sure to bring up some goodies to share next year and thank you to all who brought food to share.

enjoy!

Just awesome, great people, great food, great weather. So so so many MTBR'ers! Happy TG all.
Damn, that was fun. Great weather (even if it was 42 when we started riding), great people, fun downhill (we did Overgrown I believe). It was my second Turkey ride and certainly not my last. Happy TG to everyone.

I uploaded all my vid footage, let it letterbox (reformat for 16:9), and then my hard drive promptly crashed.

It's about 1/3 loaded as of try #2. If it all goes well, expect a vid by tonight.

Thank you to my lovely, lovely wife for cooking everything. She wanted to ride up but the kiddies can't make it up yet.

That is so cool! That's an overpowering crowd.

I had to choose between the ride up Repack on Mt. Tam, or...

Drilling a water well on the property I just bought. Which is situated near the best riding I've ever known. Yeehaw!
