Ride report and photos by special correspondent Mitzi Boland
Many of us saw downpours of rain just as we were loading up for the drive to Rome. It ended up being a beautiful day for the four couples that joined ride leaders Eric Osgood and Linda Wood for the Rome pocket ride.
Three teams opted for the long option, while the other two opted for the short.
The long option enjoyed a stop in the Pocket recreation area which is part of the national forest.
We enjoyed a long lunch at Bella Roma sharing great conversation and great food.
