Seven riders made it out for a glorious Saturday ride; numbers were down slightly due to the Maine Bike Rally in Fryeburg and a triathlon in Connecticut. There was something for everyone: conversational pace from the Bagel Cafe to the end of Slab City Road, quick paceline along Green Acre Road, and an attack to the base of the Moody Mountain climb with surges and counterattacks to the summit. All in all, it could have been a stage from Le Tour.
Speaking of Le Tour, riders shared the tip that the race is streamed live on Versus for free.
Some riders will be racing in the Hope Triathlon next Saturday, but others will meet at the Bagel Cafe between 7:15 and 7:30 for another great ride.
The following Saturday, July 25th is the annual Lobster Ride century. It promises to be a great ride- post in the comments if you plan to be there.
