Report and photos by special correspondent Mitzi Boland
We were expecting record high temperatures of 94+ degrees for the Memorial day ride. A little heat would not deter these four teams. We are all riding the long option of 48 miles.
Mike & Cindy, our ride leaders Rich & Holly, John & Mitzi, Lora & Jim.
We head toward the pocket and get lots of shade and beautiful scenery.
The day is heating fast so we had a short break at the pocket half way into the ride.
We all had a big laugh at the cows who were smart enough to stay cool.
All four teams amazingly finished with 17+ averages. We really were trying to beat the heat. Lunch was at Moe’s Original BBQ in downtown Rome and it was delicious.
The June ride will be hosted by Lora and Jim Woodward. Details are coming soon and we hope to see you there!
