|Cycling along Lakeshore Drive in Smithfield|
Hey, it's September already! Where did the summer go? Fortunately we still have some great cycling ahead as we head into Fall. We had a fine ride last Saturday from Richmond to Topsham - there were over 40 of us! Well, actually, most of "us" were riding the Maine Hospice Century and Half-Century which overlapped a great part of our route. It was a great ride and great to have so much company! This Saturday we will be meeting in Smithfield for a great double loop around North and East Ponds with some great lakeside runs, followed by a nifty ice cream stop. Hope you can join us!
