Swim with the Fishes, Bike with the Alewives

We had another fine turn-out for what I'm told was a fun ride last Saturday in Skowhegan. Thanks again to John Lanoue for leading the ride and to the folks at the Oak Pond Brewery. This Saturday's ride will be in East Vassalboro as we go biking with the Alewives on their run up the Sebasticook, as well as explore some back roads where Alewives go not. See you Saturday!
