Industrial Colors

We had a great pair of rides last weekend.  Denise and Brian led us on a scenic metric century to the Wire Bridge in New Portland, and then treated us to chili for lunch at their house afterwards.  On Sunday, Ken Louis led us on a coastal ride from Freeport that started out in dense fog and mist, but eventually cleared up and turned out quite nice.  Thanks to you all!  This Sunday we will once again head out in foliage country with a ride from Farmington to Industry and Clearwater Pond.  See you Sunday!
