Industrial Back Country

We had a fine ride last Sunday from Smithfield on roads flanked with great Fall foliage. Our thanks to Larry Childs for leading the ride, and to all who took part.  Hopefully the splendid Fall weather and scenery will continue into this weekend as we ride from Farmington to Industry.  Please note that with the weather turning cooler we will be starting a bit later, at 10 am, to give the morning more time to warm up.  See you Sunday!
