This Sunday the KVBC ride heads back to Newcastle for another very scenic tour around Damariscotta Lake, followed by a stop at the award-winning Oxbow Brewery. This ride proved to be so popular last year that no one complained about the rain - at least, no one complained to me, and I missed the ride. I don't plan to miss it this year, and neither should you, if last year's accolades are any indication. Hope to see you Sunday!
Sunday, September 6 - NEWCASTLE
"The Oxbow Incident" - a scenic house & garden tour around Damariscotta Lake, followed by a local brewery visit.
START: 9 AM at the parking lot of the Oxbow Brewing Company on Rt. 215 in Newcastle, less than a quarter-mile east of the junction of Rt.s 194 and 215. Look for the sign on the right of a owl carrying a cask.
DISTANCE: 28 or 50 miles.
TERRAIN: moderately hilly to hilly.
HIGHLIGHTS: Damariscotta Lake, with many stately lakeside homes, and lots of great scenery. Plus a post-ride stop at the Oxbow Brewery, where they have a tasting room that opens at noon, and picnic tables - it is suggested that folks may want to bring snacks, such as nuts, crackers, cheese, etc. Non-riders who wish to join us after sightseeing and shopping in Damariscotta are welcome!
LEADER: Leanne Moll.
