We had a rather cold, dark, and drizzly day for the Belgrade Lakes Harvest Festival ride last Saturday, but the Fall colors brightened the day (and the hot food at the many vendors in the village also hit the spot). Thanks to Ellen Wells for helping set up the ride and getting us outside! This Saturday marks the 50th anniversary of the classic Monty Python sketch, "Bicycle Repairman," and if you missed it 50 years ago, here it is again: https://dai.ly/x2howud. See you Saturday!
