Bring on the Summer!

This weekend was the Northern (a/k/a Summer) Solstice, the official astronomical start of the summer season. The warm weather is here and boy is it great for cycling! We started our Sunday ride 30 minutes earlier, 8AM, to help beat the heat. According to Sgt Rosenberg we had 101 cyclists yesterday who passed him sort of like Dalmatians.

The young man (Cameron) and his father (Dave) pictured in the photo to the left both road with our C/C+ group this past Sunday as they train for the American Cancer Society’s Bike-a-Thon coming up in July. Cameron is only 9 years old and just an amazing young cyclist that we are fortunate to have in our ranks along with many other great bikers.
