|Heading Towards Leeds|
We had a really first rate ride along the Sheepscot River last Saturday. Leanne put together a great route, taking us over some challenging terrain and some beautiful roads that I, for one, had never ridden down before. The weather could not have been nicer. It felt like the first ride of summer - definitely the first ride to break out the sunscreen - and we had a great group. The ride had just about everything: we had sunshine, blue skies, art, country stores, metal sculpture, dams, alwives, llamas, prosperous dairy farms, and Cow Shit Corner (with everything, you get everything). Our thanks again to Leanne for leading a great ride. This Saturday, kick off your Memorial Day weekend with an adventure from Livermore to Leeds, as well as a great run along the Chesterville Esker. Come early, and we'll have breakfast!
