We had a nice turn-out under cloudy skies for our ride last Saturday around Lake Cobbossee. Managed to avoid any serious rain, as we just had to contend with some wet roads for a time (and for one member of our group, a couple of flat tires). Thanks to Cynthia Snow for volunteering to lead the ride, and showing some of us an unfamiliar route. Please join us Saturday morning in Farmington for a pretty ride to Clearwater Pond in Allens Mills and some great ridgetop views as we head into the Fall Season.
