We had a nice, brisk, 40-mile ride from Gardiner to Bowdoinham on Saturday. Brisk in more ways than one. Still unseasonably cool (at least I hope it is "unseasonably") but temperatures are supposed to warm up this week. Many thanks to Joe Renda for leading the ride on Saturday, and to everyone who turned out. This Sunday's ride starts in Farmington and heads out over the scenic terrain along the back roads to Industry and Clearwater Pond in Allens Mills. Note that this ride was originally scheduled for August 9th, but has been moved up a week. Hope you can join us!
