With the Maine Lighthouse Ride and Pedal the Penobscot now behind us (and kudos to all of those who rode one or both(!) of those rides last weekend) we are now well into September and into the Fall and apple season. John has a new club ride this Saturday which will stop at Boothby's Orchard in Livermore - there may be a support vehicle for transporting purchased apples back to the start - check with John. This will be the first of two back-to-back apple rides (Livermore and Monmouth) and we hope you can join us!
