Roaming Around Rome

We had a terrific ride Sunday in Wayne - great weather, great turnout, great route - and a top notch post ride gathering at the ride leaders'. Our thanks to Fritz and Susan for a special day! There are a lot of cycling events going on this weekend, with the Tour de Farms and the Maine Lighthouse Ride on Saturday, and Pedal the Penobscot and BikeMaine highlighting Sunday. We will venture out to Rome on Saturday for a scenic tour that is shorter and hillier than usual. You may lose count of the hills, but there are at least seven, and seven is an auspicious number. So they say. See you Saturday!
