We have some open dates in the KVBC Ride Calendar coming up, but first some additional info on this Saturday's Capitol Breakfast Ride in Augusta:

The ride will be arrowed - the arrows are straight blue arrows with a horizontal base. Post-ride breakfast options in the vicinity are Lisa's Restaurant at 15 Bangor Street: or Rebecca's Place at 434 Eastern Ave. (Rt. 17): Does anyone have a preference or a recommendation? Last year we stopped at Rebecca's, which is a little bit off the route. Here again is the ride info for Saturday's ride (weather looks nice!):

Saturday, July 19th - AUGUSTA
"Capitol Breakfast Ride" - a tour through the stately residential areas and outlying farms of our capitol city.
START: 8:00 AM at the parking lot of the Hussey Elementary School on Quimby Street in Augusta. Quimby is right off Rt. 100 at the traffic light across from Auclair's Cycle heading north; detailed directions here:
DISTANCE: 27 miles, arrowed.
TERRAIN: moderate with a few hills.
HIGHLIGHTS: An optional breakfast stop (TBD), some really fine touring roads east of the capitol, new and intriguing routes - and did we mention breakfast?
LEADER: Jim Merrick,

RIDE LEADERS WANTED. We have openings coming up in August, as we have had to cancel the scheduled Blueberry Metric in Wilton on August 2 due to unforeseen logistical problems associated with the Blueberry Festival parade. The open dates are: Aug. 2 or 3, 9 or 10, and 30 or 31. If you can lead a ride on any of those weekends please let me know. Looking ahead to September, the open dates are Sept. 6 or 7, and 20 or 21. In October we have openings on Oct. 4 or 5, 18 or 19, and 24 or 25. So far we have had a great season of riding and I hope we can continue right into the fall. If you have a ride you would like to lead or help lead, let me know at And hope to see you Saturday!
