http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/46446/43083351_2509556755721965_3608125841239703552_n5bb51cc2c6.jpg

Who: Anybody with wheels
What: O.G.O.A.R. (Operation Get Out And Ride)
When: Saturday Nov. 10th (Meet @ 11) (Ride @ 12)
Where: Wilson Ave. Skate Park
Why: Why NOT!

Its that time again...Time for the annual Turkey Leg Ride. Born out of the need to ride all year round (any weather). Its a simple ride that is kid/family friendly. Taking off from Wilson Ave. heading south to Navy Pier. Be on the look out for updates, and additions to this ride. This has become a Chicagoland tradition with 8 years running. We hope you can help get the word out, and make it a fun ride....all bikes, and bike types are welcome.

Re: Turkey Leg Ride: 9th Annual Chicagoland

Foot Down Competition: or not? Who's planning to participate in the foot down competition after the ride? There will be prizes, and a trophy for King of the Turkey Foot Down.

Re: Turkey Leg Ride: 9th Annual Chicagoland

Is your bike ready for the ride of the year? I'm working to finish up something special and a first for me. All I'm willing to share at this time is...it's a Schwinn, and a 26" frame. I have two possible direction to go in. One geared, the other single speed....

...So what are you planning to bring out? (Share a pic)

Re: Turkey Leg Ride: 9th Annual Chicagoland

Reminder: We are OGOAR's not crazy....we ride all year-round. The weather will be a bit nippy, and unusual for some. The best way to deal with a Turkey Leg Ride is to dress for the weather.
1) dress in layers ( you can add o take off layers)
2) cover ears and hands (appropriately)
3) wear comfortable an fully closed shoes (stay away from mesh/vented/summer shoes)
4) cover face and head if you are sensitive to the cold (bring lip chap)
5)When you are at rest you will feel cool, when you are 10 minutes into riding your core temperature will rise. avoid sweating and shed a layer of clothing.
6) dress in layers: many thin layers are better than fewer bulky layers.
7Bring a backpack/bookbag to put layers in as you adjust for weather conditions.

We have been doing this for over 10 years. The coldest recorded ride was 13 below zero with a windchill of 28 below. The wind speed was around 25-30 miles per hour, and a 12-year-old girl made it. This is a tradition that is helping to put not only Chicago biking on the map, but all year riding on the map. We are O.G.O.A.R's ( Operation Get Out and ride ) this is a movement to get people off the couch and on a bike....Thanks, everyone for coming out!

Nice.  Looks like I'll make it, but I won't be on the Sidewinder.

YO P! it's going to be an endurance ride for sure...nothing we can't handle. Plus once we get rolling the day should warm up a few degree.

.....as for your OG Sidewinder. Something tells me I'll get to see it when the time is right. wink

Re: Turkey Leg Ride: 9th Annual Chicagoland

Dedicated to the cause: so social media feedback is about average. Quite a few dedicated riders from out of town are coming in. I'm hoping hospitality outweighs the weather.[img]http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-
