Augusta, Scrambled, Poached, or Fried

We had a really nice ride on the Tour de Whitefield on Sunday. It was cloudy but cool, the rains held off, and we had some great food at the ride leaders' afterwards. Many thanks to the Griffins for another fine ride! This Saturday we will meet early for a mostly scenic 27-mile ride before enjoying a Capital Breakfast in Augusta. And don't forget: this Sunday is the BCM Lobster Ride at the Camden Snow Bowl - the last year that BCM will be organizing the ride. They are also looking for volunteers, if you would like to help out and take part in the food and festivities. Either way, hope to see you this Weekend!
