Capital, Capital!

We had another fine ride last Sunday from Wings Mills, cool and dry (despite threatening rain) and a great post-ride gathering at the ride leader's. Thanks to the Louis household for the ride and the best hot dogs in West Mount Vernon! This Saturday we will do breakfast in Augusta (note the 8:30 am start) following the ride, which is a great country tour on some superb back roads. Please note that we have switched rides the next two weeks from those scheduled in the early club calendar because the BCM Women's Ride is Sunday in Freeport, and we didn't want to create a conflict with the Mount Vernon ride which has now been rescheduled for Father's Day. We may have club jerseys by then! Lets hope for good weather on Saturday and we'll see you then!
