MCC GOBBLE UP 11/4/2023:  A short climb up Chapman Road (Hill) for the local food pantry.  A fun event for all, challenging the us to see if our cycling legs can still do the hill so late in the season.  This is for all levels, and in the spirit of the holidays to help those in need.  No fee, but you do get a time handicap for the food items you donate.   

Can't ride, drop by and drop off food items. If there are enough drops offs, we may raffle the time off to a lucky cyclist(s) making the climb. Or just come join the fun and cheer others on.

Look for the ride posting and email update to go out regarding the requested items, and the time value to each.  Parking is at the City of Keen Public Works Department, 350 Marlboro St, Keene, NH 03431 just next to the Keen Ice Rink.  Please park on the far left of the lot for the Public Works spaces. Food drop off at the parking lot t 1:30-2pm.

It's an quick roll over to the start location where the Cheshire Rail Trail intersects with Eastern Avenue, and just opposite the bottom of Chapman Road.  Start is at 2Pm, with riders set off in 3 minute intervals.

To run this event, we need volunteers to be food collectors, ride starters, and timers.  The overall time commitment will be between 2 and 3 hours.  If you would like to help run this event, check out the Volunteers tab on the club webite and touch base with Dan McInerney

Food Collectors need to collect and sort food into boxes, and then transported over the the Kitchen early next week.  One of two collectors is all that is needed.

Dan Mc Inerney will record the donations for the riders handicap time. 

There are two shifts of three timers: Start at the base of Chapman Hill, Finish at the top of Chapman Hill, and Data entry at the top of Chapman Hill.  The two shifts allows for volunteers to participate in this fun community event.  Time commitment is one hour.

Any questions contact

Our sponsor the Works Cafe, will be open if you are seeking to fuel you for the climb. (120 Main St, Keene, NH 03431)

Post ride location for awards and lunch TBD. --- yes awards of all kinds from fastest, to the best handicapped time, to the best dressed turkey.
