Let’s try this again.  We’ll ride the Rockaway-Wharton-Dover classic.

Let’s meet up at the Rockaway clock tower at the intersection of West Main and Maple at 5:45pm with a 6:00pm departure.  We’ll ride a dozen easy miles.

Food and drinks at the Exchange after.


Ride Recap:

5 of us enjoyed the mild temps for a February ride.  We were immediately treated to a marvelous view of Foxs Pond/Parks Lake as the lights were reflecting off the lake. We took it slow up the hills of Rockaway.  You know the saying “what goes up…”, well Richard mine road is always a fun descent.  The paths were a little tricky maneuvering with the ice/mud.  Wharton rail trail was clear.  We had a nice conversation with the attendant of Bill Young’s Service Center.  I hope to see him at a future ride.  On our way to the canal park, I saw something flapping in the road.  It was a $5 bill!  cha ching!  We took a short break at the canal lock and decided to leave the way we came in due to challenging trails.  Bill took us by Rocky’s Pasties.  Too bad it was closed.  We’ll have to revisit during business hours.  Beer and grub was great at the Exchange.  We quenched our thirst while discussing future rides while the band played some old Johnny Cash.  Good times.  See you next month.  Ahhwoooooo!
