With the end of Turkey Day and the beginning of the new year comes the beginning of chicken season here in Davis and we are even more egg-cited than usual! A newly formed Cluck Council will collaborate to create the Fourth Annual Tour de Cluck on Saturday, May 25, 2013. As Tour de Cluck founder Jake Clemens slips into her new role as Mother Hen Emeritus, she says event-goers shouldn’t notice the difference; “We have been planning for this transition since the first event in 2010. The immediate and overwhelming success put us on notice that we were on to something!”

In May, Tour de Cluck was privileged to host a visit from Patricia Leigh Brown, esteemed writer, and Jim Wilson, outstanding photographer, both from the New York Times! In addition to being delightful individuals and exceptionally skilled in their respective fields, they became engaged in our community in a way that is reflected in the story they told. Having spent two full days in Davis, as well as conducting an extensive number of interviews and taking tons of fun and informative photos, the resulting story is accurate, comprehensive and reflects the wacky fun of the event.

Tour de Cluck 2012 was a hit! With 700 tickets sold, over 90% of our visitors rode their bicycles! Folks came from as far away as Fort Mills, SC to enjoy a fun-filled, but suitably fowl, day of chicken coops, delicious food, crazy clucking by innumerable wacky fans, bicycling visitors and chickens, barnyards and bicycle-themed auction items. As usual, Tour de Cluck participants provided as much entertainment as they enjoyed. We must share a shining egg-zample, the memorable prose created and performed by the irrepressibly clever and witty John Whitehead!

The good news: There are plenty of other fun activities for the entire community and out-of-town guests to enjoy on Saturday, May 26, the date of the event. Stay tuned for details that will be forthcoming next week. In the meantime, start forming your flock and practicing your clucking and “cock-a-doodle-do,” because you are invited to join local luminaries in the “Courage to Cluck” exhibition of poultry prowess!
