REPORT: What a pleasant day for a bike ride and it may be the last warm day we'll have for a while before more extreme rain and cooler temperatures.
Today we rode many of our usual roads making our way to Laplata where we took a Rest Stop at or around mile 16. It was raining during our stop so to pass time while watching and listening to the rain we engaged in lively chit chatter. Once the rain began to lessen, we quickly got back on bikes and continued our route.
I can't say enough good things about the combined effort of the group to stay together throughout most of the ride. KUDOS TO ALL!!!
