Many thanks to all who contributed, including Sarah Gilbert at cafemama, rbairdpccam, baudman, Julian Davies of Totcycle, Barry Childress of Baltimore Spokes, Richard Masoner of Cyclelicious, Liam Patrick Quigley of Cyclosity, Chris Brown of Brown Cycles, Matt Uhrig at Bike Jax, Bicycles Only, and the amazing folks at ITDP.

Thanks, too, to all of you who sent in photos we didn’t use. Your kids are gorgeous and it was a joy to see them all.

Happy Thanksgiving, people. Enjoy the ride.
