My apologies to one and all for not coming up with a club ride on this beautiful weekend. I have been out with a miserable cold and the weather is making it all the more miserable. I hope everyone has been able to get out and ride in this wonderful weather, which looks like it is going to continue for a while. Ken has put together a great ride in Freeport for next Saturday - a joint ride with the Maine Outdoor Adventure Club (MOAC). The following Sunday is the Cadillac Challenge, and I believe a number of people have expressed interest in doing that ride as well. The following weekend we will be in Wayne, and we still have a few openings as we head into late Fall. If you have any ride suggestions for later in October, please let me know. Meanwhile enjoy the fine weather and hope to see you next Saturday!
