An Apple A Day

We had a really nice ride last Sunday starting and ending at Tree Spirits. We got to see some very scenic roads in Smithfield, New Sharon, and Norridgewock, and we would have seen some more in Oakland if we weren't barreling through them. Many thanks to Tammy for leading and for rescheduling her ride a week for better weather. This Sunday we will head out into apple country for a pomological adventure. See you then!
