The Esker on Father's Day

This Sunday's Kennebec Valley Bicycle Club ride will start in Mount Vernon and venture out to the Chesterville Esker, a wonderful and scenic flat stretch along a unique geological formation - just a bit of serious hill climbing to get there. The forecast is for sunny skies and 80 degrees! Do we believe that? Well, it has to warm up sometime, doesn't it?. There is a lunch option at the cafe in Mount Vernon after the ride, and the new KVBC club jerseys are supposed to arrive - I will follow up with confirmation so folks can plan on picking their jersey(s) up. See you Sunday, and for those of you doing the Trek, Bonne Route!
