The first official KVBC ride of the season - the "Wake Up the Earth Ride" - is scheduled for Saturday, April 19. But this has been such an interminably long Winter, just about all of us are getting a bit antsy, and waking the Earth may require some defibrillation ahead of time this year. So we will take advantage of this Saturday's forecast of sunshine and mid-50s, and embark on an impromptu preseason ride to see what shape the roads are in North Augusta and vicinity. Get those road bikes out!
