The Odyssey Around Cobbossee

We had a great ride last Sunday in Clinton and Benton - we were able to go biking with the alewives without getting rained on, and Jeanine had picked out a great route that was appreciated by the large turnout.  Thanks Jeanine!  This week we will kick off Memorial Day weekend with an old favorite, the Cobbossee Odyssey, with an all new ride start location in Manchester.  Hope to see you Saturday, and if not, have a great weekend!
