Falling Leaves in Manchester

Hey Folks - Don't put that bike away yet. It's time to take advantage of the Fall scenery with a KVBC ride through the old farmlands just west of Augusta. Hope you can make it, 'cause we won't have too many more opportunities like this before the winter sets in. Special Note: remember to set your clocks back an hour - the ride starts at 10:00 AM, Eastern Standard Time.

Sunday, November 1st - MANCHESTER

DISTANCE: 23 miles.
TERRAIN: moderate, with one long hill.
HIGHLIGHTS: We'll ride some colorful back roads through woods and along streams in and out of Wings Mills, and take in some near-peak foliage hilltop views.
