Eleven Ponds, Three (or more) Hills

Finally, June has brought us some warm cycling weather!  It actually got a bit hot on Leanne's splendid "Tour of the Back 40" Saturday in Windsor, but the scenery on the ride is so spectacular, who could complain?  Many thanks to Leanne who had good luck with the weather for once. Sunday we will meet at the post office in the village of Mount Vernon, as we head out to Fayette and Chesterville for a nice ride along the Chesterville Esker (a really pretty route if you haven't ridden it yet).  Looks like we might have some nice weather for a stretch.  See you Sunday!  For all those doing the Trek this weekend, Bon Route!
