Our first Monday Night Intro Ride of the year brought together five riders along with ride leaders Ari and me. Some were new to cycling, and others more experienced, but it was a well-matched group that worked well together, and we made good time on our 17-mile Hadley route. We enjoyed a lovely evening, some beautiful views of the Hadley farmland, and a nice (but brief) tailwind on Comins/Russelville. A bit of scarified pavement on Rocky Hill Road threatened to rip Dave’s phone from his handlebars, but he made a nice save and avoided a phone disaster.

Quick programming note, next week’s Intro Ride will roll as scheduled at 5:30 PM on May 22, but we will skip the following week for Memorial Day, resuming on June 5. Hope to see you out there!
