Saturday the Wire Bridge, Sunday at Bean's

Last Sunday's ride to the Wire Bridge was postponed due to unsettled weather.  Which means we get a do-over this Saturday with better weather and even more resplendent foliage!  And that's not all - we will also have our scheduled ride Sunday in Freeport with some spectacular riding along the Maine coast.  A great double header, and we hope you can join us!
