Damariscotta - Pemaquid - Boothbay

It's always a pleasure to spend the 4th of July morning riding with Jim Putnam and company, and we had a great turnout on Saturday to prove it. Once again, many thanks to Jim for another memorable holiday ride!
We have a "double-header" planned for this weekend. This Saturday's KVBC ride will return to the scenic Pemaquid Peninsula with a great ride along the shore. There will be a follow-up ride on Sunday around Boothbay. These routes are not only scenic, but also a great trip to the coast, and there are many great places to stop and see the sights. Contact the ride leader for suggestions for overnight accommodations. Hope you can join us for one or both of these rides!
