Dave T. put together a ride on short notice. We had five riders make it out for this one on a beautiful early May Sunday. Temps hovered around 60 degrees with some 20 mph winds. We met at Starvin Marvin's and headed out Rt 2 to Canosia where we headed north to Twig. From Twig we headed east to Caribou Lake and then Pike Lake where we turned south back to Starvin Marvin's. Total miles was 22.8 with an average speed of 13.2 mph.
Smooth sailing on Canosia Road

This was a relaxing ride. We hope to have more of these types of rides throughout the summer months. Try to join us for a few of them.

June 25-26
Three ELCA pastors from the West Virginia-Western Maryland Synod will be riding a custom made triplet bicycle constructed from bamboo as they cross the country on a mission to promote wellness and to do their part to alleviate world hunger. They leave Chicago in May 13 and arrive at the Churchwide Assembly in Minneapolis August 20. check out their new Web site and learn of their mission to fight hunger.
Our synod is looking for bikers interested in forming a synod team to ride into Duluth with them upon arrival the afternoon of June 25 from Marquette, MI. That evening they will give a presentation at a Duluth area congregation. (and possibly again the morning of June 26). A group of riders will then ride a ways with them as they depart for Rice Lake, WI.
