We had another splendid ride from Wayne on Saturday, and we had a fine turnout despite some rather cool, cloudy conditions that looked rather unsettled but turned out to be fine. We explored some great back roads, including some new gravel options that really took some of us off the beaten path. Many thanks to Fritz and Susan for leading, and for all who came out! This Sunday we will head out to the coast for a tour around the Camden hills that will feature a stop post-ride at the Cellar Door Winery. Please note the 10 o'clock start, and see you then!

Thank you.
