Not Quite Cinco de Mayo

We had a fine ride around Lake Cobbossee last Sunday to kick off May and Bike Month. Many thanks to John Lanoue for leading, and for leading this Saturday's ride from the Oak Pond Brewery in Skowhegan on Siete de Mayo, which is not-quite Cinco de Mayo, but there is an optional microbrewery tour on tap, so maybe that's close enough. The weather forecast is for sunny skies and mid-60s, which sounds close enough for Anything de Mayo!  Please note the 10:00 am start.
