Wiscasset Treats

We had beautiful weather Sunday morning for the Century on Rt. 105 from Augusta. It did warm up, however, and the heat and the hills persuaded a number of the participants to cut the ride short. We still had fun though (at least people are still talking to me) and David Lipman has just the antidote with a splendid ride in store for this Sunday, as we ride from Richmond to Wiscasset. There will be a stop at Treats, too!  Hope you can join us!
