We had a great ride from Richmond to Wiscasset Sunday, thanks to David Lipman, who scoped out an all-new ride over some beautiful back roads - and included a delightful stop at Treats Bakery in Wiscasset! Many thanks to David for putting together such a fine ride on short notice. This week's ride in Waterville will traverse the popular Colby Loop, starting from Colby in Waterville on Sunday, August 17. PLEASE NOTE: the ride date has been changed from Saturday to Sunday. Hope to see you Sunday!
