Meandering to Maranacook

May and Bike Month are upon us, and they are even predicting some temperatures in the 80s this week!. We had a nice intro to warmer weather on the ride last Sunday around China Lake - many thanks to Jeanine and to everyone who turned out! This Sunday we will meet at the Maranacook School Superintendent's Office (well, his or her parking lot, anyway) in Readfield for a 27-mile ride. This ride is one that is currently featured on the Bicycle Coalition of Maine's new "Where to Ride" interactive ride finder - and that's no surprise to anyone who's done it!  See you Sunday!
