We had a cool, misty, foggy start to last Saturday's ride over the Back 40 in Windsor, but we had a good group of a dozen riders who rewarded for their troubles when it dried up and the sun even came out for a bit. Many thanks to Leanne for another fine ride. Here's hoping it continues to warm up for our next Spring venture, checking in with the Spring Alewife Run in Benton. Go Fish!
