The weather started to turn frosty for our ride Sunday from Waterville to Canaan. We did have some bright sunshine, some beautiful Fall colors, and a fine group of 18 riders to take it all in. Many thanks to David for leading the ride, and to Camille for scoping it out! This Sunday we will meet in Farmington for a ride to Clearwater Pond in Industry. By now you should know all the COVID-19 protocols: please bring a mask and use it when in close quarters, maintain social distancing, and please stay home and get well if you are feeling sick. Hope to see you Sunday!
