Father's Day Ride 2015: Soggy but Happy :)
Well, Sunday was certainly a wet morning! But somehow serendipity delivered a wedding tent and we huddled with hot coffee, bagels, music, and plenty of laughter. In fact, about a dozen people actually rode in the torrents. It was a communal making of lemonade from lemons! Huge thanks to our registered riders, sponsors and community partners - let's hope for better weather next year.
