Work off those Thanksgiving calories before you take a single bite at the annual Turkey Roll Bicycle Rally! Typically the Saturday before Thanksgiving, this year’s rally has gone VIRTUAL, enabling participants to ride the distance and date that best suits them!

All proceeds from the Turkey Roll will benefit the programs of the Denton Breakfast Kiwanis, which includes sponsorship of eight youth leadership clubs (Circle K, Key Club, Builders Club) and their Tiny Libraries project, which provides books for school-aged children.



Virtual options include full ride on a route chosen by you — with ride number, masked turkey commemorative shirt, and virtual event bag; reduced rates for children 12 and under; and no frills with all perks except the shirt. You may ride our traditional route in Denton County or a route of your choosing with rest stops designated by you along the way. Apply your virtual goody bag coupons to treats from our wonderful sponsors either before or after rally day.  

Or, if you prefer, just donate to the youth service and leadership clubs sponsored by Denton Breakfast Kiwanis at local middle and high schools and at UNT or to the Tiny Libraries for young children we place at local elementary schools and gathering spots.

When to Ride

Saturday, November 21, 2020, or earlier, but no later than 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 22.

The virtual ride offers the unique opportunity to ride at a time of your choice and to adjust your date to the weather. Just complete your official ride and submit your picture using the hashtag #dentonturkeyroll on Facebook or Instagram no later than Monday, November 23, 2020.

Masked turkey t-shirts commemorating this virtual ride in the sizes required will be mailed to your designated address soon after the rally.

The Denton Turkey Roll is organized by the Denton Breakfast Kiwanis.  All proceeds go to the Kiwanis Club in support of youth leadership clubs at eight different schools, the Tiny Libraries project, and the back-to-school project. The latter two initiatives provide free books for school-aged children, ensuring Denton’s young students and bookworms access to resources they need to learn and have fun while doing it!
