Firemen's Breakfast

The weather for both days this weekend is looking excellent, so we have added a ride in Readfield Saturday to take advantage of the Readfield Fire Department's annual Breakfast, which has a reputation for being really first-rate.  You don't have to take part in the breakfast (although you may regret it) as we will be starting the ride at 9 am just down the road at the Elementary School on South Road (not the Maranacook Schools on Rt 17).  Sunday's ride will be in Vassalboro - hope to see you this weekend!

Saturday, June 2 - READFIELD
"Firemen's Breakfast Ride" - a breakfast supporting First Respondors, followed by a ride through Readfield, Winthrop, Wayne, and Fayette.
START: 9 am at the Readfield Elementary School, 84 South Road. Breakfast is from 7 to 9 am before the ride at the Readfield Fire Dept. at 1154 Main Street in the center of Readfield.
DISTANCE: about 29 miles, may include a mile or more on gravel, which can probably be bypassed.
TERRAIN: flat to rolling.
HIGHLIGHTS: a pre-ride Firemen's Breakfast ($8) to benefit the local Fire Dept. and a tour of the many lakes and ponds in the area.
LEADER: Jim Merrick, 293-3784,

And don't forget the KVBC Ride Sunday in Vassalboro:

Sunday, June 3rd - VASSALBORO
