Denton Breakfast Kiwanis (DBK) Club invites you to our 39th Turkey Roll Bicycle Rally! We have five (5) routes, including one 8-mile route, especially for families with kids and challenged riders. There will be plenty of sag wagons and rest stops, including the Raising Cane’s Chicken Finger stop at Wishbone Pass, the Rudy’s Bar-B-Q stop for the 68 milers, and our greatest ever Celebration Station at the finish line.
The Ride Send-off: Saturday, November 20, 2021, at 9 a.m. from Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (ICCC), 2255 N. Bonnie Brae, in Denton. Denton Breakfast Kiwanis members will be there as early as 7 a.m. to welcome and register riders. The church is at the corner of Windsor and Bonnie Brae (From 380, travel north; from Loop 288N, travel south). Enter the ICCC campus from Bonnie Brae for registration and parking. Breakfast will be provided by Chiloso Mexican Bistro.
Early Packet Pick-up: Riders registered by November 12 may pick up their rally packets from 9 a.m.to 6 p.m. on Monday, November 15, at the Denton Bicycle Center, 1700 N. Elm, Denton, TX 76201, until noon on Friday, November 19. To pick up your packet later on Friday, please come to ICCC between 5 and 7 p.m.
Day of Rally Packet Pick-Up will be at ICCC between 7 a.m. - 9 a.m.
Routes: All routes start on Windsor Drive north of the church, riding east through North Lakes and Evers Parks, to Sherman Drive. You’ll turn left and pass the Sherman Drive Fire Station and stop signs at Loop 288 underpass. The 8-mile route ends at the Water Works Park Rest Stop; turn around here.
The other routes continue east on Sherman Drive. Pass Route 2153 and turn left at Zachery Road (8.6 miles from start), just beyond the Zachery Road Rest Stop. Follow winding Zachery Road until you hit Burger Road (mile 10.4). Then, turn right on Burger, which hairpins back to Route 2153, where you turn right (mile 12.8). Then you’ll turn right again on Running Bear Road (mile 14.2), soon reaching the Wishbone Pass Rest Stop on Highway 455 by Lake Ray Roberts. This is the decision point for all riders. You must reach Wishbone Pass by 11 a.m. to continue left on Route 455 for the longer (52 and 68 mile) routes . All riders may enjoy Raising Cane’s chicken treats at Wishbone Pass.
For the 29-mile route, Wishbone Pass is your turnaround; so go back to the start via Running Bear Road, Route 2153, Burger, Zachery, Sherman, and Windsor. Please note that Burger Road meets up with Route 2153 twice. Turn left at the first Burger (mile 16.4) for a ride to Zachery that will enable you to complete 29 miles. As you exit North Lakes Park, turn left on Bonnie Brae to enter the church campus, where you’ll find the Celebration Station. There are five rest stops on this course, all with water and sports drinks, cookies, and bananas or some other nourishment.
The 39-mile course follows the 29-mile route to Wishbone Pass. Turn right onto Highway 455 and cross the Lake Ray Roberts Dam. On this route, you’ll find a rest stop south of Pilot Point (mile 21.9). After the rest stop, turn right onto Route 377 and then turn right again at Route 3524 immediately after Dennard’s (mile 24.8). Proceed through Aubrey, where you’ll continue onto Route 428 and back to Sherman, Windsor, and the ICCC grounds. We’ve got great treats waiting for you. There are six rest stops on this route.
For those riders who want more, we offer the 52 and the 68 mile routes. Make sure you reach Wishbone Pass by 11 a.m., and from Wishbone Pass, turn left on Highway 455. Just before Sanger High School, turn right at Marion Road (mile 20.1) heading north to the Lois Road Rest Stop (mile 20.8) on your left. After a break, turn right on Lois Road, left on Huling Road, and left on Chisam Road, which ends at the I-35 north frontage road (mile 24.8). Take the frontage road to the Lone Oak Rest Stop at mile 27. This is your turn-around for the 52-mile course. Cross the highway; then follow the I-35 south frontage road to Lois Road, where you will cross the Interstate again, head east to Marion Road, south to Highway 445, east to Wishbone Pass, and back to start. On the return from Wishbone Pass, please note that Burger Road touches Route 2153 twice. Take the first left onto Burger to ride the full 52 or 68 miles. Then turn left on Zachery and right on Sherman toward our glorious Celebration Station.
For the 68-miler (109 KM), go east from Lone Oak Rest Stop on Lone Oak Road and left onto Hemmings (mile 30.5). You’ll cross Lake Ray Roberts four times, hit the Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q Rest Stop (mile 34.7), and head west on 922 to Valley View Rest Stop on the town square. From here, head south on the I-35 south frontage road, east on Lois Road, and then on to Wishbone Pass and Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers.
All routes begin and end at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. All except the 8-mile route pass the Water Works Rest Stop and Wishbone Pass, headquarters for first aid and minor repairs. Our well-marked route is supported by downloadable Garmin elevation maps.
