3 riders turned out for the finality for the 2017 ride series. The weather was very pleasant but windy at times.  The route was one of the easier ones in that there were lots of familiar roads.

On the Freedom Trail, there was a near miss with a chipmunk but things worked out.

Leaving Akron, there were some stretches of pavement that almost knocked our helmets off. Overall, it was a great day to be out.


Riders included:

Eric Overton
Jim Boland
Joe Ochmanski

Close Calls I got t-boned by a chipmunk. We were on the freedom trail when a chipmunk ran into my wheel, jumped, hit my shoe, and then darted under the bike and continued across the path. No harm to chipmunk, rider, or bike.
