We had a beautiful Fall day for the ride last Saturday from Winthrop to the Monmouth Apple Fest. Crisp temperatures, bright sunshine, and some superb apple pie, doughnuts, and other treats at the festival in Monmouth. And the ride wasn't too bad, either! Hopefully we'll have more of the same this Saturday as John will take us into October with another great ride in Chesterville. Hope to see you Saturday!
