Report by Ginny

Eleven lucky riders, led by Monica, were treated to what might’ve been the most beautiful nights since the leaves popped.

In the warmth of the evening sun, we set off on a mission to round the airport and finish the ride at Black Spruce Brewing. Ginny brought the pretzels!

Although breezier than some folks would prefer, the sky couldn’t have been bluer. When the group came back together near the new bike path in front of Compeau’s, Ginny took to the front of the pack and led the group on a mile of silence to honor and remember our fellow cyclists who have been killed or injured by motorists.

Pedaling around the start of the airport was a slog thanks to a gnarly headwind, however, when we all rounded the corner we felt like speed demons with the wind at our backs. Richard unfortunately had his 2nd flat of the season and decided to head back early.

The last bit of Van Horn led us to the brewery where most of us treated ourselves to a beverage of choice, while Ariane and I gobbled down delicious Gyros from Meg’s Tasty Treats food truck.

Welcome to the four new folks that came out tonight and I can’t wait to see who shows up next Wednesday.

This week’s ride route.
