Since the weather is not that great for Paddling on the Ocean this Saturday, I still need excersize and want to see a place that i have not biked for more than 30 years ago then get a few David Glass Cakes on the return trip home.
I may throw some wood in the fire pit and do a Rain Dance as a finishing the day option.
If you are interested in doing a fairly simple bike trip, tasting and picking up a few David Glass Cakes, please join me.
Getting to the Bike Meeting Spot,
Use #1 (or any number that can get into your GPS) Vibert Street, South Windsor and go all the way down the dirt road to the parking lot by the CT River.
