We had a great ride and a great turnout in fine summer weather last Sunday in Mount Vernon. The new KVBC jerseys were definitely attention-getting, and the group looked pretty sharp, both on the road and in the cafe afterwards! We'll have to schedule a group photo on an upcoming ride. In keeping with our string of rides featuring good food, this week's ride is the 8th Annual Bike & Boat in Greenville, which includes a steamboat excursion on the lake with food and live music. Plus there is an option of spending the weekend with like-minded people (and more food!). Check it out!
