Hello 2013!

A new year is here but have no fear: Another Team Evesham ride is near! We ushered in the New Year with a ride. And it was a great ride: Over twenty riders showed up all set with their New Year resolutions. But we made a quick meal out of that: Donuts! After donuts we headed out to Murphy’s Market and then past Seneca H.S. to Hawkin – thanks to Dave Bennis for this great route. After the ride many of us headed over to Brio for a New Year’s Day celebration. See what you miss when you don’t ride with us? A big thanks to Cathy Hartman for making the arrangements for us.

Friday’s ride was cancelled but we did host a Saturday ride (thanks Scott & Laura) and a Sunday ride as well. Wait Sunday — well that one kind of fizzled. Remember that snow on the ground Sunday morning? We thought it would melt and everything would be fine. The temperatures were on the rise, the sun was out and the snow did melt. But was a very wet ride. So wet in fact that that most of us turned around (soaked) about six miles into the ride. Trees dripping, puddles everywhere and tires spouting water like a whale breaching. Dispirited but not defeated we headed to Panera Bread for a warm, dry breakfast.
