Cycling club to celebrate Thanksgiving with first Turkey-duro

The event will be a low-key, enduro-style race utilizing new touch-less Sportident timing system

This Thanksgiving, Sunday, Oct. 13, the Williams Lake Cycling Club is hosting a fun, family-oriented, Thanksgiving-themed event at the Desous Mountain Trail Network billed the Turkey-duro.

The event will be a low-key, enduro-style race utilizing new touch-less Sportident timing system.

The kids race starts at 10 a.m. with a lap or two around the new campsite on Smoke and Beers with the other age groups to follow. More details will be provided on site, but the plan is to ride all over the fresh, front side runs.

Following the kids races a three-stage enduro race on the more advanced trails in the network is slated. This will also be a fun, free event.
