The crazy, wet weather we've been having didn't deter 13 Cyclopaths from riding on Saturday. Under gray skies, but with the promise of sun, Bill, Av, Sheldon, and Sam -- plus Gail, Manny, Mike K., Donna, two Pauls (G. and J.), Margie, Steve-Bob, Barbara (by car), and Tammy (with shoes), headed to Hamilton for breakfast at the lovely spot, Henderson's. With one woman doing all the cooking for our crazy crowd (plus normal customers), we managed not to drive her crazy with our incessant needs. (Sam, that was 'Smart Balance' on your bagel.) After breakfast, most headed back to Salem while a few others headed up to Ipswich or Bradley Palmer State Park. Nice to have all four founding Cyclopaths on a ride together! Great photo by Barbara!

Noticing that we have several Pauls in addition to Mikes and Daves.

I'm guessing the folks that went to Bradley Palmer didn't get too far asthe bridge on Asbury is now closed so there is no way to Ipswich except by 1A or Topsfield by Rte. 97.

The 4C's changed plans and headed up to Smolak Farms in North Andover. ANother time for sure.

Hi Bruce --

Donna, Sheldon and I did the Bradley Palmer loop. We didn't need to cross the bridge -- though we did pass it as we exited the park. The three who went up to Ipswich, (Steve-Bob, Paul Guertin and Paul Jolicoeur), continued down 1A when we took the turn to go to BP.

Hope you had a good ride!

We rode thru Bradley Palmer (heard frogs croaking in the pond) and took a left at the other end, up and over the hill. We even spotted two Bambis out in the field. : )
It was a short and sweet ride.

Sounds like it was a great time! Sorry that I couldn't be there!

Heading out of town in the morning -- will be away from the blog and email for a week while we are out in Cooperstown and the Berkshires. I have scheduled posts to appear almost daily this week -- they are in a queue and will publish while I am away.

Hope there are fewer problems with the photo collection this week and Shutterfly. Let me know if there are still probs.

THANKS, Donna, for taking care of Maddie. I hope she is good for you. (Don't let her jump!)

Have a good week!
