Tour de Lacs on Sunday

We had a great ride last Saturday, and a terrific turnout for Denise's "Big Lakes Tour" from East Winthrop.  We had the pleasure of welcoming some new people and seeing some familiar faces - and the weather turned out to be great as well. Our thanks to Denise and her crew (Hi Brian!), and to Tom, who provided us with cold water at his shop at the ride's end.
This week's ride will feature another classic KVBC ride: the "Tour de Lacs" in Wayne.  PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DATE OF THE RIDE HAS BEEN CHANGED FROM SATURDAY TO SUNDAY.  Since many folks may be already signed up to do the BCM's Women's Ride in Freeport on Sunday, I will post the map and cue sheet for the Wayne ride for those who might like to do it on Saturday as a show-and-go leaderless ride.  Otherwise I hope to see you on Sunday, and have a great ride regardless!
