We had beautiful weather and a splendid ride on Sunday over some great back roads through Wayne, Fayette, Leeds and vicinity. The scenery was first rate, the company was grand, and we even got treated to lemonade at the summit of Mt. Pisgah! Our thanks to Fritz, who managed to lead the ride on one or more bikes, despite some challenging mechanical difficulties. This Sunday we will head out to Lincolnville and the Cellardoor Winery, situated in an elaborately refinished barn nestled in the hills outside of Camden, and venture out over another very popular route. Hope to see you Sunday!
