"Everyone talks about the weather - we don't" As we seem to have passed another brief wintry blast, we will meet in Chesterville on Saturday to make up (in part) a ride that was washed out last month, and take advantage of sunny weather when it is offered to us. John Lanoue has mapped out rides of varying distances depending on conditions at start time. This may be one of our last group rides before winter really sets in, so I hope you can join us!
