Odyssey to Cobbossee

We had spectacular weather for the ride from Gardiner to Bowdoinham last Sunday. Bright blue skies, nice roads - some with new pavement, and marked with nifty "KV" arrows - even a nice tailwind. Many thanks to Joe for leading (and arrowing!). Hey, we're in August already! Time for a ride around Cobbossee Lake. We'll meet on Sunday next to Fielders' Choice Ice Cream in Manchester. Hope to see you then!
