Turkey day ride 2013

A small group of us turned out with smiling face for RVMBAs annual Thanks Giving morning lap of the Apple Gate Lake.

Me mounted up at Unreal Cycles, with new shop frequent visitor AJ in tow, and braved the cold weather.

After initial concern nobody was coming, being first on the scene at the Apple gate, the usual suspects began to trickle in.

Wrapped up in layers of clothing and ready to hit the trial, we got initial safety meetings out of the way.

We got everybody back together at the top of the first climb for safety meeting 1a.

After that we set off in our groups, fast boys, medium paced boys and slow boys.

This was the scene at the top of the second climb, where Kirk as struggling for oxygen.
