20th Annual Cohen Classic Ride Report

You could not have asked for a better day weatherwise. Queen Kathy and I (Donna) met at the North Hampton Elementary School and pedaled north along the N.H. Coastline. The ocean was a sparkling blue and provided Mother Nature's air conditioning. It was cool. There were many other bikers out, many adorning PMC kits. Kathy & I enjoyed ringing our bells and shouting "PMC"! Since there were only two of us, I decided to repeat what I did 20 years ago and eat breakfast at The Golden Egg. We enjoyed our breakfast and continued north. Up past The Wentworth, runners saluted us with a smile and a friendly "Good Morning". We saw a few Crash Test Dummies and Bruce was with them. We continued our loop and took pics at Nubble Light. Made it back and enjoyed an Dunkin iced coffee. No headwind this year. No scorching temps either. An enjoyable Cohen Classic. Pics to follow.--Donna
