The Hot Dogs Have It

We had some fine weather for our ride last Sunday in Mount Vernon, and except for a stretch of "partial pavement" we had some pretty fair roads to explore.  Hopefully the great weather (and the pavement) will continue this Sunday as we explore the "other side" of Mount Vernon during the KVBC's sixth annual Ken's Hot Dog Ride!  Fast becoming a club tradition, we will meet at Ken's house after the ride for grilled hot dogs (veggie burgers also available for those of you who aren't what you eat).  Ken would like folks to email him at ahead of next Sunday so he has an idea of how many of us to expect.  We already know we can expect a great ride - and a hot dog, too!  Hope to see you Sunday!
