Troop 151

Scouting in (and out) of Seattle

4th Annual Turkey Burner Classic 50-Miler

November 13, 2012 By: Kevin Category: Announcement, Events, Merit Badge

When: 7 a.m., Friday, Nov. 23, 2012 (the day after Thanksgiving)
Where: The Shoreline Top Foods Store, 1201 N. 175th Street, Shoreline, WA 98133

We meet at 7 a.m. for free refreshments provided by Top Foods and then leave by 7:30 a.m. to ride north on the Interurban Trail to Everett and back — a distance of 50 miles, which can fulfill the Cycling Merit Badge requirement.

We take a fairly leisurely pace and make a couple of stops for hot chocolate and have lunch at the downtown Everett McDonalds (bring a few extra $$).

Please make sure your bike is in good working order and have your 10 essentials. Please… no cotton! We do not offer breakdown service or repair. This event is simply an opportunity to burn some post-Thanksgiving calories and ride with fellow scouts and scouters. We always have a great time.

In case of snow or substantial ice we will reschedule. Please check the Troop 853 website in the event of extremely severe weather. We do ride in the rain (and we love it).
