You are invited to join me for bikes@vienna's Guilt Reduction Ride on Thanksgiving morning. I start serving hot cider and oatmeal/raisin cookies at 8 AM. The ride starts at 8:30 AM going west on the W&OD Trail. The ride will go to the train station in Herndon and return to Vienna. You can go further or ride less depending on your schedule.
The ride is called the Guilt Reduction Ride because many of us will over consume during this day of feasting. If you've ridden twenty miles in the morning then you should be able to feel less guilty. The second reason is that you are asked to bring food stuffs for the Committee Helping Others (CHO) Food Drive. You will have acted to help others during the holiday season and that reduces guilt. Please invite friends and family to join you and bring lots of food stuffs for CHO.
If the weather is questionable you can call the bikes@vienna number (703.938.8900) after 7 AM to learn if we plan to ride.
