Wayne's World

Cycling in Wayne, KVBC ride, 2011
We had a great ride along the Kennebec River Rail Trail last Saturday, thanks to Jim Floyd.  After a bit of a raw start along the river, it actually warmed up and the rains held off in a most cooperative manner.  By the time we got back to Hallowell for a stop at Slate's bakery, the sun came out and we had a great post-ride get together outside in their courtyard.  I don't know if we woke up the Earth but we sure woke up the rain gods for the rest of the week.  The forecast is that they should be done by Saturday, which bodes well for our second ride, starting at the Wayne Elementary School on Pond Road.  Meanwhile, stay dry, and hope to see you Saturday!
