…in the wrong direction. The Adventurers had a true adventure Saturday. Even though it was cold, it was sunny and 11 riders came for the ride with Lindsay Rausch speeding through Secor Park to join us at the last minute. Turns out that there was an accident that closed 475, and 4 riders were caught in the shut down. With no idea when they could get there, we sadly had to leave them behind. But we invited 3 Plus 5 riders at Secor Park to join us.
We needed them, as the whole first half route to Blissfield was into the 10 mph northwest wind. As usual, the group worked well together, and we made slow but steady progress, arriving at the Blissfield Coney Island for breakfast. The owner greeted us with a smile and a hearty “You made it!”. The Plus 5 riders bade us farewell and travelled on.
As we settled in for breakfast, (which was delivered quickly), the four delayed riders (Larry and Diane Dunbar, Marty E and Joe Peltier) arrived after chasing us down to bring us up to fifteen riders. Our return route went smoothly. While we were hoping for a good tailwind, the wind started to shift just enough to make the group work. But we all arrived safely back at Secor Park. Consensus was it was a good route on good roads and we had a good ride.
Join Debbie next week at 8:00 at Mallard Lake in Oak Openings for a 40 mile cruise to Grand Rapids and back. We hope to see you there!
