Bike May Day!

May Day!  Time to kick off Bike Month straight off on May 1st with a challenging route around Lake Cobbossee next Sunday.  In spite of the chilly April weather we had a great ride in Hinckley last Sunday - thanks to Jeanine and all the folks, new and old, who came out to L.C. Bates to ride and picnic afterward.  Forecast is for the weather to turn warmer and more May-like this weekend, which is fortunate, as the ride starts and ends right next to Fielder's Choice Ice Cream.  See you Sunday!
