May and Bike Month are upon us, and while it has been a challenge to avoid the raindrops, we did manage to get in a great ride in Skowhegan last Sunday. Many thanks to John Lanoue and everyone who participated. This Sunday is Mother's Day and we will meet at the Maranacook School Superintendent's Office (well, his parking lot, anyway) in Readfield for a 27-mile ride. Please note that this ride has been moved up a week from the original KVBC Ride Calendar listing, and that we will be biking with the alewives in Vassalboro the following Sunday. Meanwhile we will hope for less rain and even fewer blackflies, and another great group of people on Sunday in Readfield! See you then!
