We had a great turnout for the "ride before the ride" Saturday ride before the Lancaster Classic Covered Bridges ride.
RIDERS: Jessica H, Sherwood Byers (co-lead), Harry Kidd, Patricia Sanders, Stu Morgan, Karen Morgan, Ellen Goodwin, Walt Rossello, Linda Blackman, Marc Blackman, Steve Palinscar, Diane Harris Catherine Miller, Ed Miller, Linda Bancard, Holly Carr, and Diane Donahue.
We met at Strasburg RR to the HOOT of the incoming steam engine. It was clear and warm, and heated up by the afternoon.
We divided into a number of rides: most did the 41miler, with 2 Covered bridges and Lapp's Ice Cream.
Walt took a small group on the 49 mile route.
Steve P elected a shorter route which turned into a bit longer-than-he-anticipated.
Despite forecast to the contrary, when we were at Lapps, it started POURING! We waited it out for a few minutes, then hit the road. We got just wet enough to get cooled off.
No major mechanicals, no injuries. One member took a wrong turn but found the end.
Most of us had a great and lively dinner at Iron Hill Brewery.
