What do you get when you combine National Ice Cream Day with a PEACHES ride? Miles of smiles, of course. This month we find the club in Madison, GA for a “triathalon” of riding, swimming and eating hosted by Sherry and Jose Rodriguez. As advertised, we do all three.
Ten teams make the trip to the city that was “too beautiful for Sherman to burn”.
After a parade lap through downtown Madison, we are quickly into the country and on the Dixie Highway, perhaps the best tandem road in northeast Georgia.
The 49-mile riders got to visit the store in Good Hope, which has been around for over 100 years. They have the pictures to prove it. These outfits were not coordinated before the ride. Or were they?
A biscuit was sampled. At only a dollar, it could be the best store snack value in the area.
We could get used to rides like this. Sherry and Jose have set a new standard for post-ride refreshment.
Wendy Davison brings a “homemade” ice cream cake, straight from the Dairy Queen. What a delicious end to a fun day.
Speaking of Wendy Davison, she and captain Mark Pauly will be hosting the next ride from Serenbe on August 13 at 8:30AM. Details will be released soon.
