Ken's Hot Dog Ride

We had spectacular weather last Sunday for our ride in Wayne - sunny, calm, and cool.  This Sunday's weather is forecast to be just as nice and maybe better!  And how much better could it be, just in time for Ken's seventh annual Hot Dog Ride!  We'll meet in tiny locale of Wings Mills in Mount Vernon (directions below) for a very scenic ride and a Hot Dog cookout later.  Ken would appreciate if you email him at so he can get an approximate headcount.  Hope you can join us!
