We had a fine turn-out for the metric century from Wayne to Buckfield and Paris on Sunday. No one got (too) lost, and we all survived the hills and the gravel chip seal the highway dept. decided to add to some newly paved roads. This Saturday we will return to Mount Vernon, and yes, that means it is time once again for Ken's Hot Dog Ride! This will be the tenth annual Hot Dog Ride, and we will meet at the ride leader's after the ride. If you can make it, or even if you can just come to the BBQ afterwards, an RSVP to the ride leader so we can get an approximate head count would be appreciated! See you Saturday!
