Saturday

We had 24 riders to start. It was so nice to finally have a ride start where you could have worn shorts if you chose too. Definitely a day to leave jackets at home. It almost convinced me that spring is near. 😉  Anyway, it was sunny and nice day to be out on the road but the wind made for a tough day.  It was so nice to see so many riders turn out including two newcomers. We had two riders to come from as far as Mentor and one from Fremont.  Overall, a very nice day.
