This was supposed to be Ken’s ride to lead but some things came up in the office and he needed to do that 4-letter word…WORK. So, in dedication to Ken, we biked the route that he so thoughtfully laid out. Being the good sport, he wished us all a great time on what was likely the best (and only) biking weather of the week!
Howard biked from the Linglestown area to Fort Hunter and then to our starting point at Boyd’s. We descended the Boyd’s parking lot and headed east on Route 443. Then, what a surprise, we picked up Larry near Manada Bottom Road on our way to Ridge Road. Larry biked from his home in Linglestown in the opposite direction of Howard to meet us head on and join our ride. What an East Shore “Flex” ride with a last minute new leader, Howard biking a clockwise loop to the start, and Larry biking a counter-clockwise loop to meet us.
We took our scheduled break at the Manada Golf Course and then headed back to Boyd’s via Route 443 to make the ascent to the parking lot. Howard and Larry biked home as they continued on to Fort Hunter to Linglestown.
We're all wishing Mark a fun and safe cross country bike trip from San Diego to Michigan to PA this year. And, welcome back to Bob.
We were all wondering where Chris was. Well, as it turns out, he was picking up his slick new Salsa ride at REI. Guess we’ll give him an excused absence for that. I wonder how well it rides in the snow?
All-in-all, a good day for almost everyone, sorry Ken!
