Coffee is Grown on Hills

We had a great ride from Richmond to Wiscasset last Sunday, despite the heat and humidity.  Due to the heat, we started promptly at 9 am, and took advantage of every shady thoroughfare on the route - splendidly scoped out by our leader, David Lipman.  We also got to ride over the new bridge on Rt. 197 which had some great scenic views of the river from the top.  David has another great route - and another fine coffee shop - in store for us this Sunday.  Hope you can join us!
