If you were looking for a perfect day for a bike ride, this wasn't it. However, temperatures were around 50 degrees so I can't complain about that, and the strong winds just added a bit of some chill and challenge. We struggled a bit en route to the Kings Gap General Store where we bought some of their great cheddar cheese from the the big wheel. We learned that they can't add a public restroom at the store without adding parking spaces and more amenities, so we won't see that happening anytime soon. So we headed off for a pit stop at the Huntsdale Fish Hatchery before riding back to South Middleton Park. That strong wind gave us a great boost for the return trip. Congratualtions to Laura Erb..this was her first day of retirement! And Sharon is one tough woman who rode to the park from home and got in about 50 miles today.
