What's Brewing on the Kennebec?

Despite some overcast skies and a few raindrops we had a really fine ride from Readfield last Sunday. We had 23 riders set out on some of the best cycling roads in central Maine, culminating with a stop at the Apple Shed Bakery in Kents Hill. Thanks go to Lydia for leading us on another fine ride!  This Saturday we will venture north to Skowhegan to see what's brewing on the Kennebec. Hope you can join us!
