Now that the Watermelon Ride has been retired, the club had decided to put on a new fun club only event for the 4th of July.  This will be the TCBC 4th of July Celebration Ride and will start at Turtle Lake Park in Shoreview.  We will have 3 ride great routes of 27, 50, and 64 miles for you to ride with C, B/C, B, and A/B versions.

And to encourage riders to stay after the ride and socialize, the club is having a pizza party at the Turtle Lake Park picnic shelter which we have reserved for the event.  The club will provide pizza and beverages beginning about 1 PM.  The pizza will be delivered in batches between 1 and 2 PM to ensure hot pizza for everyone.  To participate, just register for the pizza party on the calendar just like you do for the club rides, so we know how much pizza to provide. We request that you sign up a couple days early, so we can get an accurate count ahead of ordering pizza.  We’ll have staggered start times of 9:30 for the 50 and 64 mile B and A/B routes and 10:30 for the 27 mile C and B/C routes so everyone can finish within a similar time frame.  Beer and wine are allowed in the park, but you’ll need to BYOB.  So, sign up for pizza, spend some time visiting with your TCBC friends, and enjoy a great celebration of the 4th of July!
