Apple Fest!

We had a great ride on Saturday in Livermore that featured a stop at Boothby's Apple Orchard. Many thanks to John Lanoue for leading the ride and arranging for an "apple shuttle" to carry bags of purchased apples back to the start. Sunday's ride ventured out to the Wire Bridge in New Portland, where we were treated to cider and apple cake thanks to Diane & John Macdonald, and we were all pleased to see John up and about just a week from his accident. Thanks also to Denise & Brian for another great ride! We continue with the apple theme on this Saturday's ride which a stop at the Monmouth Apple Festival - apple pies, apple turnovers, apple donuts, apple everything! Hope you can join us!
