** Update ** Jack Skellington Ride 2023

Greetings, ghouls and ghosts! It’s almost time for VeloConcepts’ annual Jack Skellington Ride, but we’ve had a few last-minute changes that even our crystal ball couldn’t predict.

Due to some unpredictable weather and unforeseen circumstances, Julie (our resident scaredy-cat) has decided that she’s not quite up for a grueling 60-mile ride. So, we’ve made a few modifications to our usual route and reduced the longest ride to a ghastly but manageable 41 miles.

Don’t worry, we won’t be taking any shortcuts to make up for the lost mileage. We’ll still be following the same wicked route as last year, complete with hills that will make your legs feel like they’re possessed by demons.

However, we do have some bad news for all of our adventurous riders out there – we’ve had to eliminate the gravel options this year. But never fear, for we have plenty of bone-chilling terrain to keep things interesting.

And for all of you craving a pumpkin scavenger hunt, we’re sorry to inform you that we’ve had to put that on the back (or rather, burial) burner. But have no fear, we’ll still have plenty of fiendish fun and games to keep you entertained.

Now, we wouldn’t want you to show up looking like a plain old mortal, so make sure to don your best Halloween attire. Whether you’re a zombie on a bike, a vampire in spandex, or a witch on a broomstick, we want to see it all.

And of course, what would a Halloween ride be without some spooky snacks? Bring your most petrifying potluck dish to share with your fellow riders. Just make sure it’s not too frightening that nobody will want to eat it.

So, grab your bike, your costume, and your appetite for terror – the Jack Skellington Ride may have changed, but the nightmare lives on.
