    I received our initial order of magnets with the club logo. They are going for $1 each (Proceeds to the club's general fund). I'll have them with me in Whitehouse on Saturday morning and on subsequent rides. Come get em! (Same size as the club stickers we had with the old logo...3").

    What an incredible April evening for a bicycle ride. 25 cyclists ventured onto the same route used by the Monday night summer riders. Although it was a large group everyone did a great job staying together and taking their turn pulling. Looking forward to next week.

    The second week of Saturday Adventure Touring brought out 19 riders on a sunny, just warm enough day.

    We rode about 20 miles into the wind to get to Liberty Center, reminding ourselves that it would be a lot more fun when we turned around.

    And it was! But, sadly, we went past the burned out Log Cabin Inn on CR 3. The restaurant still stands, but the bar was destroyed.

    Once again, we met up with the Meanderers at The Buzz for lunch.

    Next Saturday, we leave from Whitehouse at 9:00 for the Big Blue Rendevous.

    With the sun shining, cold, and wind made for a great ride this morning, with 12 riders this morning with Lindsay turning around to ride with the Adventure Saturday group ride. As you can see we stopped at the hippy chick bus for a fun photo shot. I made a comment that I think all will agree, ‘“we ride in the groups to enjoy the friends”. Makes the weather much more tolerable. Saturday Adventure Group n the Meandering Group arrived In Whitehouse at the same time to our reserved table at the Buzz. By the way, Terry is buying next week, from Mom.

    Next week is the Meandering group Ride Easter bunny ride. Destination to be determined. Have a great week!!

    From Rick Metcalf:

    "Christopher Crandall is the 2019 Winter Warrior Challenge winner. He was the only one to complete all 22 rides. Hubert Backes, myself, Allen Kraus, Ric Hummel, Jason Sheidler, Matt Cleland, Greg Rogo and Hugh Benning are proud to welcome Chris into the exclusive Spartan Winter Warrior Club."

    Twenty-one riders enjoyed perfect weather and a great ride down and back on the Towpath for the first Intro to Gravel Ride. One near miss of a suicidal squirrel is all I have to report. Greg, Chris, and I took off from Waterville to attend the Winter Warrior finale. Along the way we ran into John and Alan and had a short rendezvous with the Meanderers in Whitehouse. Great day to ride!


    The next Intro to Gravel ride leaves from Pacesetter on 4/20 at 9am. However, if you are up for a serious challenge, the Summer of Stupid opening day is riding Poto and DTE, same day, same time. Either way, you'll get a little dirty, and dirt is good.
