We had a nice, dry ride last Sunday in Vassalboro - remarkably so, considering the forecast. We saw an abundance of alewives, both the scaly, piscine kind, and the chewy, gummy kind. Our thanks to Tammy for leading and to Jeanine for organizing, and to the dozen cyclists for riding. Next Saturday we venture out on another odyssey around Lake Cobbossee, starting and strategically ending right beside Fielder's Choice Ice Cream in Manchester. Definitely worth checking out - see you Saturday!
