This past Saturday was The 5th annual Great Turkey Chase orchestrated by Liam Griffin. This was my third chase since living in Burlington and probably my favorite to date! The weather was gorgeous; I literally rode in a long sleeve button-down and jeans (the same clothes I’d worn the night before), with no need for a jacket or even gloves. In Vermont at this point in the year that’s unheard of. Especially since I had a number of friends who opted to go ride Stowe, Kilington, or Mount Snow that day. Yup, like the annoying house guest, winter shows up early here and stays far beyond its welcome.

Liam did a great job of putting this all together again, so a huge thanks goes out to him for giving us a fun event where we can give a little back to the community. I’d also like to thank him for including us as a sponsor the the second year. As far as results go, Simmers finished first in terms of speed, however Lockwood took the win for buying TWO turkeys (buying a turkey gets you a time bonus) and Norris was by default bumped to third. I finished a few heads later with no turkeys on hand as my bag was filled with all the layers I’d been stripping. Thanks to Liam for these photos, see a few more below. Stay tuned for some shots I took later this week.
