First there was Hurricane Bill; then there was Danny. Hopefully the third time's the charm, 'cause the weather looks great all the way through the holiday weekend. The KVBC ride in Farmington was washed out last Saturday, but not enough to prevent scouting out a great breakfast ride for Friday. Join us on Monday, Labor Day, when we will try our luck again with the Mount Vernon ride that was rained out earlier this summer, heading out through West Mount Vernon, Chesterville, and Farmingdale. Fall is coming - more great riding ahead!
