We had a fine ride down the Pemaquid Peninsula on Saturday, despite some wet weather to start the ride off. Many thanks to David Lipman for leading, and for the undeterred folks who braved the weather and turned out. The rains returned in force on Sunday, washing out the 2nd ride planned for the weekend, but we were grateful to David for getting one of the rides in. This Saturday we will venture north to Norridgewock for a tour through Somerset County followed by an ice cream social at the ride leaders' house! Please join us!
