Harry Ford of the Morgan Cyclists sends out a list of suggested spring rides. “These are dates and times I will ride, and I invite and encourage all to come along. More emphasis will be placed on after-ride socializing–i.e., breaking bread and replacing liquids.” Your suggestions for rides, social opportunities, whatever are welcome throughout the summer.
