We had another fine outing on the Fourth of July in Sidney, courtesy of Jim Putnam. It started off cloudy and mercifully cooler than it has been of late, but cleared up and warmed up by the ride's end. Many thanks to Jim and the 20 or so riders who turned out on the holiday. This Saturday we will revisit another classic club ride around Lake Cobbosseecontee, with an optional ice cream stop at the end. Please remember that we are following pandemic protocols: please bring a mask with you to wear when you are in close proximity with others, maintain a healthy distance between riders, and please stay home if you are feeling unwell. Join us if you can!
