There are a lot of things to like about this bike ride: Turkey Day costumes are encouraged, their turkey mascot has a name (Tom Pedro), there’s a midway stop at a diner for pancakes and eggs, and if you really feel you have to see the Bears-Lions game at 12:30, you will be home in time. Sponsored by BikeNYC, the NYC Pilgrim Pedal starts and ends at 23rd Street and the East River, then winds its way through Brooklyn and Queens for a 10- to 12-mile ride. Kids are welcome if they are helmeted and accompanied by a helmeted parent/guardian. Registration includes breakfast — a great deal, and perhaps one of the last outdoor events before winter sets in.
