The Great Turkey Chase IV – Cory Mcdonald’s Photos

The Great Turkey Chase Burlington Vermont bike ride

This past Saturday was The Great Turkey Chase part 4, an annual food drive bike ride/race organized by Liam Griffin. Firstly, I’d like to thank Liam for putting this together each year – it brings so many great people together, all on bikes, riding or racing while collecting food for those in need this Thanksgiving. The group of riders and racers this year tipped the scales bringing in 1470 pounds of canned goods, turkeys, stuffing mix, and much more – that’s about a 520 pound increase over last year! There were also 22 turkeys collected.

Prizes were awarded for 1st – 4th Fixed and Freewheel as well as heaviest human haul and most weight in tow.

My second year racing couldn’t have been more enjoyable. I could have done with less headwinds, but what’s a race without torture and suffering? Check out the results below as well as a few photos from Cory Mcdonald. Have a look Cory’s full album on Facebook here and Liam’s shots right here.

Thanks again, we all had a blast! Stay tuned for some of Hunt’s photos.
