    Default Great Pumpkin Ride 2021

    The Great Pumpkin Ride is back in 2021. Its scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd.

    Registration is available through the interwebs, although it looks like the e-mail announcing the ride is outpacing the updating of the website: http://fauquiertrailscoalition.org

    So now the tough question is: What should the group costume be this year? Weve done gnomes, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Bros and Sesame Street.

    Some costume ideas:
    Bees
    Minions
    X-Men
    Ghostbusters
    Harry Potter
    Treasure Trolls
    Covid-19

    Have you done superheroes?

    For those who want an idea of the fun, here's my video of the 2019 ride: https://youtu.be/ucfJVOP5bio

    And no doubt, the DC-area costumed group shall win the ride again, as we do every year.

    I registered. Might be a fun ride on the e-bike this year. Will definitely take the sting out of the hills.

    If we do bees, then of course Sarah will need to be the queen and the rest of us worker bees or drones.

    But I do sort of like the idea of everyone going as their favorite Covid virus. Or perhaps we do something Zoom-themed: business on the top, boxers and fuzzy slippers on the bottom.

    I'm officially signed up. Current list of ideas is below. I had made the addition of everyone dressing up as Mr. Happy, to disprove that there is only 1 Mr. Happy.

    Bees
    Minions
    X-Men
    Ghostbusters
    Harry Potter
    Treasure Trolls
    Covid-19
    Superheroes
    Dr Seuss characters
    Sponge Bob Square Pants
    Clowns
    Food
    Workers at Home
    Mr. Happy

    If we do X-Men I'd be tempted to go as this guy.

    Probably who your parents named you after. I put X-Men on the list so I could bike with some adamantium claws on.
