A Wet Sunday Ride

The KVBC ride on Sunday was warm and wet. The group of six started at the Laura E. Richards school on Rt. 201 in Gardiner and followed a shorter route than was originally planned. The pre-ride doppler radar showed a good sized storm bearing down on us and there was no reason to punish ourselves.
The rain started as soon as we began our tour through the back roads of Gardiner, Richmond and Litchfield.
Noteable roads being the New Road in Richmond which gives you a nice long (1 mile-ish) 3% decent; a Tour de France-like uphill switchback onto GrindStone Crank Road; a grape vinyard and views of Pleasant Pond.
We did get some dry weather towards the end and everyone had a great time.
Hopefully next year the loop to Bowdoinham won't get rained out.

  1. Hi Joe,

    I'm not a biker, but I have to admire serious bikers who can get through the tough weather moments like rain and extreme heat. Like on the Tour de France, when it's raining buckets, and they still keep on going.

    Keep up the great biking all summer ;)

  2. I've been to Litchfield and that area. Very nice place to ride!
