We haven’t been up in the Patten district for a while, so today I planned a route to take us up through Conway, across the bridge on Bardwells Ferry Rd, and up into the Patten.

Nine people showed up to brave this one. The weather was gorgeous- clear blue skies with temperatures starting in the low 60’s, rising to the upper 70’s. However, persistent NW winds between 15-25MPH made most of the ride a real challenge.

Ended up being a little surprised that we were able to sneak this ride in — the weather cooperated, and delivered a mostly-dry and fairly tolerable morning. The roads were still a bit wet at the start, but dried out fairly quickly.
