|Heading Out Rt. 8 in Smithfield|
We have had some exceptional riding weather of late. Sunday's ride in Albion was clear, cool and dry, and Jeanine had mapped out a fine route with lots of new pavement and some great ridgetop vistas, ending with a great ice cream stop. Thanks, Jeanine! Fall is on the way, and 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 another nifty ice cream stop. Hope you can join us!
