Eleven (not quite a dozen) Ponds

A quiet run along the Chesterville Esker
We had great weather and a great ride last Saturday in the Belgrade Lakes. We were able to visit with the Trek riders at the Smithfield rest stop on the Colby Loop - coming the day after the tragedy on the Trek, we felt like we should be with them, and as luck would have it we ran into Leanne, and the stop cheered us up. This Sunday we will meet at the Post Office in the village of Mount Vernon, as we head out to Fayette and Chesterville for a nice run along the Chesterville Esker (a really pretty route if you haven't ridden it yet). See you Sunday!
