The Tradition Continues...

Wandering riders... Tam and Sheldon got a late start out of Salem today, where the temperature hovered around 40 degrees. (Chilly!) They missed Av (who drove to the start with herring and other feastables) by just a few minutes as they headed off into the cold air. On Lothrop street, the duo ran into Ducky, who was off to meet Richard and couldn't join them, but does hope to see everyone next week. Donna checked in via text and was riding in spirit, while Queen Kathy and Ethan (seperately) got an even later start than Tam & Sheldon and headed towards Manchester. (Kathy called from Manchester Center, and Ethan emailed from Singing Beach.) En route, Kathy ran into Duane and Pat who had hoped to meet everyone for breakfast. (Cyclopaths all over the place!)

Tam and Sheldon kept the Passover/Easter tradition alive by singing off tune songs and eating matzoh and dried apricots at beautiful Lynch Park by the sea. The cherry and apple tree blossoms have burst and the bright sunshine made it a beautiful day, despite the chilly temps.

Next week: 7:30 Start as we ease into our regular early departure time for Spring.

Talk about being wanderers lost in the wilderness - very symbolic!!! Blessings and greetings to my Cyclopathic friends as we celebrate Easter, Passover, Spring, Red Sox Season, and FRIENDSHIP -

Sounds like a "band of locusts" making its way to Manchester-by-the-Sea. Glad you kept the tradition alive.

Happy Passover and Happy Easter everyone. Sorry to miss those who made it to Manchester. Sheldon and I made it a short ride to Lynch Park as I had to get back early for a family event. It was quite chilly yesterday and I missed my coffee! Hope for warmer temps next week.
