How much do LOVE this ride! It’s cottage country about 30 minutes north of the city!
The last time the bike rally did this ride I was sweeping and it was a stormy day! There were numerous injuries and falls so the sweep car quickly became EMS.
This time around, and on the bike, it was a gorgeous day and made such good time! I’m so happy that the weather cooperated because it allowed me to truly appreciate all of the scenery; open land, horses, cows, a lake… what more could you ask for!
As always, we were greeted by the shop keep at Cedar Beach Variety and “the Coolest Little Ice Cream Store”; he’s always very happy to see the cycling groups as they roll into town. This place has a total old cottage town variety store feel with old creaky floors and candy everywhere… the kind of candy you likely ate, and loved, as a kid! It’s always nice to have a quick rest here before heading back to the city.
Looking forward to next time!
