A sunny day and 80 degrees!

The weather sure got folks confused today, but we still had 51 riders out today for our ride to the Old World Bakery.

And yes we love it there, we have four routes that go out to the bakery as a rest stop. Rich was our historical interpreter for the “B” riders calling out the sites; Smithville Park, The Old Courthouse in Mt. Holly, the prison, etc.

We got to welcome 7 new riders to our group and one person who was on her bike for only the second time, way to go Dana! For your knowledge we get up at 6:00am and check the route and the weather. We will update the website and send out a group email at 7:00am if we need to cancel the ride. At 6:00am this morning the roads were dry but the rain came through about 7:30 and while the speeds were down as we exercised caution on the roads everyone was safe. Just a reminder about the rules of the road, the guideline is only two riders abreast and never impede the cars that are passing us.

Thanks to our great ride leaders; Dave, Phil, Chuck, Brad, Lon, Dennis, and Frank. On Thursday we have two events to talk about, D&Q is hosting a ladies cycling night at the store and for those who can’t attend we will begin our midweek Thursday rides. This week our ride starts at 6:00pm at the Evesham Township Municipal Building, 984 Tuckerton Road in Marlton. We will do the Evesham-Medford loop on Thursday.

This coming Saturday, April 21, the Evesham Police Unity Tour team is hosting a charity car wash at Marlton Classic Car Wash, 8 West Route 70, next to Canals, in Marlton. Come and get your car washed or get an oil change, the proceeds will benefit the Unity Tour Team.

Also, please don’t get left out, sign up for the Tour de shore (Irish Pub) ride and ride with us as we join up with Team Murphy this coming July. This ride is limited to only 1500 cyclists and it sells out early every year.

Welcome back Rob!

Next Sunday promises to be another great day to ride, if you like what we do, invite your friends. And a big welcome back to Rob, great to have you back with us, where are Matt, Bob, Aileen, and Stefani?

– Brad, Chuck, Dave, Sandy, and Wendy
