NBW Great Grandma's Farm Ride, April 26 2009
So suddenly it was 80 degrees, and no shade from the still budding trees, for this tester of a ride in our hilly North-West quadrant. A large crowd tried out their spring legs on the many hills on the 50 mile route, and, if they were like me, found them not ready! But a beautiful old New England route.
