Sculptures on the Back 40

May is Bike Month, and we got off to a fine start last Saturday in Livermore, led by John Lanoue (thanks John!). We had great weather - and there's more in store for this week, they say. Hopefully it will last right into the weekend when we have another great ride planned for Saturday in Windsor. One of the highlights of the Windsor ride is a stop at the "Iron Horse" to view the sculpture gardens of Roger Majorowitz, who passed away late last year at age 83 - his massive steel sculptures are definitely worth a visit while they still stand in his open field. Hope to see you Saturday!
