Vassalboro and Bike Month

We another adventurous ride on Saturday around the challenging hills bordering Cobbossee Lake, and once again we managed to dodge the forecast rains.  Our thanks to John Lanoue for a great ride.  Hopefully we will start getting some sunnier and warmer weather as we move into summer, all the better to showcase these great rides our intrepid leaders are coming up with!  We'll meet in Vassalboro this Saturday to close out the rides for Bike Month.  Last year the temperatures on this ride soared to 90 degrees!  Not sure we'll challenge that record, but the Lipmans have again arranged for a post-ride gathering - much appreciated! - and they'd appreciate RSVPs so they can get a head count.  If the sun will RSVP we'll be in great shape!  See you Saturday!
