Greetings 109ers,

I hope this ride announcement finds everybody doing well. If you need to Clear your mind, October's ride is the one to do it on. We will be taking advantage of our last ride of day light savings and we will be using the whole day. This ride is probably the longest local ride this year. By the time most of you get home you will have racked up approximately 300 miles. With that said, we will be meeting earlier this time so please read the below information carefully.

Remember this too is cancer awareness month and Chapter 109's annual cancer awareness ride. This month's ride is to the Tehachapi Loop. The Tehachapi Loop is a 0.73-mile (1.17 km) long "spiral," or helix, on the Union Pacific Railroad line through Tehachapi Pass, of the Tehachapi Mountains in Kern County, south-central California. The line connects Bakersfield and the San Joaquin Valley to Mojave in the Mojave Desert. Seeing a daily average of almost 40 trains, the line is one of the busiest single-track mainlines in the world. With its frequent trains and spectacular scenery, the Loop is one of the prime rail fan areas in the country. In 1998, the Loop was named a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark and is now California Historical Landmark #508.

For those of you who are newer to chapter 109, in October we show our support for cancer awareness by wearing pink for our ride. We wear anything from shirts, bandanas, wrist bands, pins or even wrap our bikes in the pink sports wrap tape. It doesn't matter what it is just show your support by wearing or showing pink. As the NFL does this all during the month of October the stores, especially the sport stores have plenty of pink merchandise that can be used. Get out and get your pink soon as the stores will be dwindling in the pink products very quickly.

We will meeting at Burger Town USA, It is located at 760 N. Archibald Ave Ontario, CA 91764 (909) 944-790, (Just North of the 10 freeway on the East side of Archibald). Due to the length of the ride, our revised meet time is 7:30 AM, with KSU at 8:30 AM. Please be sure to show up with a full tank of fuel and its advisable to bring cash for your lunch meal to secure one of the cash discounts being offered. Also be prepared for both hot and cold weather as this ride consists of both desert and mountain environments. The estimated time everyone should be home is 5:00 PM - 6:00PM.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
