The Great Turkey Chase, pt. 3 

Published November 11, 2010 at 10:58 a.m.

If you ride bikes, or you're rad, you should be at the Great Turkey Chase Food Drive & Alley Cat this Sunday. It's a fun way to show off your sick two-wheeled skills while collecting food for the underserved and hungry in the area. 

Here's how it works: you get a checklist of items you need to purchase and a map of the locations of the stores where these items are found. Pedal from checkpoint to checkpoint as fast as your little legs will spin collecting the foodstuffs along the way. Bonus points if you buy a turkey. Winner is the one who crosses the finish line first. 

Last year's race attracted 38 riders and netted more than 550 pounds of food, including seven turkeys, for the food shelf. You can read my account of participating in last year's race (and not coming in Dead Fucking Last) here. This year, organizers are trying to top that. And as long as the weather holds off and the traffic gods cooperate, they should.
