We finally broke the streak of hot and humid weather that has been plaguing us for the past couple weeks, with a beautiful warm and clear evening for our ride on the Hadley loop. We had 11 riders total, including a guest appearance from Hugh and Laura, visiting town for a couple weeks with their tandem. We were very successfully practicing our paceline skills and moving around within the group. Mark and Shirley split off near the end to head back home to Amherst, and the rest of us took a quick side-trip up onto to the berm in Hadley to pose for a couple of pics.

Next week we will be riding another flat route, our Hatfield loop, at 5:30 PM on 8/22/22 from Sheldon Field in Northampton. Hope to see you out there!
