Pancake Ride

From Mike:

We are going to have a pancake ride this Saturday, 27 June 2015, 9:00 am, West Falmouth shopping center. For those not familiar with the ride, we do the regular Saturday ride, stopping at a park for pancakes about 1 1/2 mile from the starting point. You can come for the pancakes and not do the ride, or do the ride and not do the pancake portion.
For those joining for pancakes, there is a $5.00 fee to cover the cost of the materials.
This ride should be about 25 miles.
This regular ride is listed as follows:

Departs 9:00 AM May through September (please consult our calendar: no rides when some other club rides are scheduled…such as York Beaches or Fryeburg Frolic). Meet in the parking lot at the West Falmouth Crossing Shopping Center at 65 Gray Road (Route 100) opposite Maine Turnpike exit 53. Park on the far left of the main parking lot. Rides are generally from 25 to 35 miles with mostly a moderate pace and moderate terrain.

I’d appreciate if anybody who even MIGHT show up to drop me a line at: Michael_Detscher@msn.com

I don’t need a commitment, I’d just like to  get a feel for how many may be showing up.

Memorial Day Ride 2015

From Janice:

Come join me for a Memorial Day “parade” bike ride.
Meet at 9:00am Monday at the Riverside Hannaford (Rte 302 and Riverside St. in Portland).  The route I have used in the past is around 30 miles.  I am trying to time it so we end up in Cumberland at 10:00 in order to watch the parade there.  Last year they had some good looking food booths along the parade route so bring money for a snack.

Ride Schedule is Set for 2015!
