The Heat is on in Taylorsville

What could be more perfect than the hottest day in 4 years to host the June PEACHES ride?  It’s hard to believe that the last club ride, just a little over a month ago was so cold we were all bundled up in tights, jackets, and long finger gloves!

Here we are trying to beat the heat with an 8:30 start on our 41 (or 27) mile ride.  Eight couples attended the ride hosted by Roger and Eve.

We welcomed a new team to the PEACHES family.  Here are Richard and Holly Polich, not new to riding a tandem, just new to the Atlanta area and our club.

It was hot and a popsicle to match your jersey is always a brilliant idea, and does NOT count as ice cream!

Local rest stop entertainment was provided by this dog, which apparently drove itself to the store!

The terrain in Taylorsville is somewhat hilly, but it’s beautiful and almost traffic free.

Lunch at Udder Delights was enjoyable – many milkshakes were ordered, but the treat many of us were waiting for was the ice cream!  We earned it, and we enjoyed it!

Please mark your calendars for the next ride on July 17th.  Sherry and Jose Rodriguez will host the ride from their home in Madison.
