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
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.
