Turkey Roll Bike Rally

by on November 15, 2010

Worried about beating that holiday bulge? The 28th annual Turkey Roll Bike Rally will give participants a chance to lessen their guilt about any ensuing indulgences of turkey and stuffing.

North Texans will gather on Saturday, November 20 for the bike ride, with multiple courses set up through the hills of Denton and Grayson Counties. The event will begin at 9:00 AM at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

The Turkey Roll will kick off with a spaghetti dinner Friday night from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.  The all-inclusive dinner of beverages and unlimited portions will allow riders to fill up on carbs to energize for Saturday morning’s ride.

Prices

  • $8 for Adults
  • $5 per child (5-12).
  • Children under 5 are FREE under 5. All inclusive dinner, beverages, and unlimited portions.

Last year’s routing of the course will be used again. All routes will begin at ICCC.

The 25-mile course (Green Route) will run along Windsor and Sherman Dr, and continue to the southwester edge of Lake Ray Roberts and end to ICCC. There are 2 rest stops on this course.

The 35-mile course (Blue Route) will follow the route of the 25 mile course past the 2nd rest stop. The course will then turn east and cross Lake Ray Roberts Dam. After the dam, riders will go south on 377 through Aubrey to end at ICCC. There are a total of 4 rest stops.

The 47-mile course (Orange Route) will follow the 25 mile course to “Wish Bone Pass.” After Wish Bone Pass, the course will continue north into Cooke County. Near Lone Oak Road, food and beverages will be available at one of the 6 rest stops.

The 63-mile course (Red Route) will cross Lake Ray Roberts 4 times and go north to the city of Valley View. This course will feature the Terrell and Nancy King rest stop. Then, the course will continue to Valley View. There will be another stop here before riders go back to Denton. There will be multiple rest stops on this course.

The price of registration is now $22 ($30 the day of the event). Participants who become a fan of the Denton Convention and Visitor’s Bureau blog and Facebook fan page will receive an exclusive offer to register for the Rally for only $15. (The promo code will then be given for online registration)

T-shirts and goody bags will be given to the first 500 riders. Proceeds from the 28th Annual Turkey Roll Bike Rally will benefit seven local youth organizations, and help to provide school supplies to over 1,000 children in association with the Apple Tree Project.

Each course is designed to ensure the safety of all riders, and port-a-poties will be available at all rest stops. The ride will go on rain or shine, so come out for a bike ride through north Texas before your inevitable turkey coma!
