Everyone (Usually) Likes a Surprise

We had a superb "Wake Up the Earth" ride last Sunday. A great group of 22 riders turned out on April 22, and we had bright blue skies and warming temperatures, and the leftover patches of snow didn't do anything to diminish our "Wake Up" vibes. And the weather to start off the week is definitely following suit! Our thanks to Jim Floyd for leading, and for providing all who turned out with some fresh maple syrup to get us in sync with the change of the seasons! This Sunday's ride will start from East Vassalboro at 9:30 am as we set out in search of a China Surprise. See you Sunday!

"China Surprise" - a delightful tour over the hills and dells of Vassalboro and China.
START: 9:30 AM at the Vassalboro Historical Society parking lot at 327 Main Street just north of the China Lake boat landing on Rt. 32 in East Vassalboro (not the boat landing in South China).
DISTANCE: 25 miles.
TERRAIN: moderate, with some hills and flat sections.
HIGHLIGHTS: a selection of great, scenic rural Maine roads with great views of China Lake and surroundings, with a surprise thrown in! (And there is a rumor that the Ice Cream Dairy Bar in South China is open!)
LEADER: Jeanine Libby,
