A Memorable Weekend

Memorial Day weekend!

Saturday’s Hilly Philly Ride
On Saturday morning, May 26th, 21 members of several area bike clubs including members of Team Evesham road West from the Philadelphia Art Museum into the beautiful Belmont Hils area and back through Manyunk. Challenges included the now infamous Ashland Avenue and the Manyunk Wall with numerous hills in between.

Sunday Ride
We had 58 riders join us on Sunday when we left the Promenade Shopping Center. Great riding weather accompanied our all-level ride to one of our favorite stops, Zena’s Cafe in Riverton. We rode along the Delaware River and through the rolling hills outside of Moorestown. Many thanks to the compassionate riders at the back of the B+ group who stopped to pick the turtle out of the road. We may be slow but we’re not that slow heartless. The B group were troubled by three flat tires and ended up splitting into two factions: the B-flats and the B-sharps. The show must go on as they say.

When we finally returned to the Promenade we were greeted by the jealous Ridemaster who had earlier cancelled his ride for the morning because of the apparent weather conditions. If the Ridemaster would only join Team Evesham his amazing prose would reach millions (we have a large and thriving email list). Let us worry about the weather forecast oh great Ridemaster!
