Ride report by special correspondent Mitzi Boland
What a great day to be out on the tandem! It was a chilly start Saturday (5/17/14) morning in Rutledge as 9 couples headed out for a 45 mile ride. Jose and Sherry Rodriguez were our hosts for the May ride.
The course took us past some of the beautiful mansions in Madison.
Then we had great views in the rolling countryside.
We were all ready for the rest stop at about mile 18. As you can see, Margaret had a blast from the past! Or maybe she was trying out a different kind of saddle??
As we headed back into Rutledge after the store stop, the sky became black all around us. I think that we all decided it was time to pick up the pace a little to avoid getting wet. We were all lucky enough to make it back without seeing any rain.
The post ride lunch was at the Caboose in Rutledge.
Sorry, no food pictures. Everyone enjoyed the sandwiches and fresh squeezed lemonade. This group is ready and excited for GTR 2014.
