The TCBC 4th of July Celebration Ride will be back in 2024!  It will start at Turtle Lake Park in Shoreview.  and will have 3 ride great routes of 27, 50, and 63 miles for you to ride with C, B/C, B, A/B, and A 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. Registration for the pizza party will close at noon, Tuesday, July 2nd, so we can put in the pizza order in advance.  So, don’t miss out, register before the deadline and enjoy the pizza party after the ride on the 4th with your TCBC friends!  There will be a suggested free will donation of $5 to help cover the cost of the pizza.  We’ll have staggered start times of 9:30 for the 50 and 63 mile B, A/B, and A 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.   PARKING: There is parking at Turtle Lake Park, but if full there is plenty of overflow parking available at the Chippewa Middle School on the other side of Hodgson Road.  The entrance to the Chippewa Middle School is just south of the Turtle Lake Park entrance on Hodgson Road.  So, sign up for pizza, spend some time with your TCBC friends, and enjoy a great celebration of the 4th of July!

NOTE: There may be some mileage adjustments due to road construction workarounds.
