We had an eventful ride this past Saturday along the Kennebec River Rail Trail and beyond. We had eleven riders in rather crisp temperatures, but the potential rain never materialized and we got in a nice ride along the river. We never got a chance to thank our ride leader, Jim Floyd, as he was called away by troubling news from home as his wife Martha had suffered an accident while out for a hike with their dog. Thankfully for cell phones and dog whistles, Martha was found by the rescue team and transported with difficulty to safety. Our thoughts are with both of them and we hope Martha is home soon and on the way to recovery.
This Saturday's KVBC ride will start and end in Wayne at the Elementary School on Pond Road (off of Rt. 133). Hope to see you there!
