Thanksgiving Ride?

I know most of you have either put away your bikes or are in the process of ... but I'm considering putting together a ride around Thanksgiving depending on Road and Weather conditions I know its a while off but I thought I would post this up now.

yep i see this thread taking a quick right turn away from riding due to that last picture in about 3 maybe 5 more post max

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

Okay I'm open to suggestions about the route as I care about is to get out and ride - I don't foresee it being a Fast ride cause it probably gonna be cold as hell but w/e It'll still be fun.

Around Thanksgiving or on Thanksgiving? Most Thanksgivings, I go to my sister in-laws house out in Hampshire. If a decent day (above 40), it would not be hard to convince me to ride from the western burbs to Hampshire.

Oh, my youngest daughter goes to U of Minnesota. Not sure what they look like at Iowa, but those girls in the last picture sure do look like many of her roommates. Gophers FTW.

Around Thanksgiving (not on day of - unless majority want that), It might be nice to get away from the Family on Thanksgiving Day
But chances are that it will be difficult for most everyone to convince the family to let them go for ride.


Oh and BTW, I am thinking start at SOW or something in West Suburbs. (not Iowa)

I'd recommend against the friday after due to excessive shopping traffic unless you're planning this ride to be far far away from any metropolitan area.

Canceled, because my bike wanted to see how good it was off road and if I could fly. Turns out it sucks off-road, and I CAN fly ...
