The Alna Alternative

We had a great ride on Saturday with 12 riders climbing some hills in the heat, followed by a post-ride gathering at the ride leader's cabin on Watson Pond. Many thanks to John Schooley for the ride and the follow-up festivities. This week's ride will be Sunday in Alna in the scenic Sheepscott River valley, with another post-ride gathering. Hope to see you there!
