Report: A few seasoned regulars welcomed Ben Barnes on his first OHBTC ride . We rode a pleasant pace at times , enjoyed the surroundings and looked out after each other . We all enjoyed our peloton conversations and catching up . Alan had been off the bike due to a bad cold and rode really well on his first outing . Ben is Deaf , a strong rider , a great guy and did well learning how we rotated the pace line. I think a mirror would be helpful for him to see upcoming cars and become smoother . The highlight of the ride was seeing “Bessy” the Cow in the middle of the rail trail staring us down . We had a photo shoot with Her & came across the Farmer in a four wheeler who was looking for her . It was Hilarious . Great Ride !
