Weekly Update

Monday, September 10, 2012

Back in the US of A after 3 weeks in the Great White North. Wonderful vacation, but good to be back.

Now looking forward to our trip to Bryson City. Frank, Becky, Doreen, Kevin, Bonnie and I will be representing Greater Raleigh. I hope some more of you can make it.

Kevin asked me yesterday if we are planning a summer excursion. To tell you the truth, between my recent trip, planning our trip to Down Under and recently taking the reins of FO, I hadn’t thought of it, But what a good idea. In the past we have gone as a group to Maine (bah hahba) and Niagara Falls. I am up for it and would like some suggestions. I will put in my 2cents for a trip up and around lake Michigan, with a Ferry ride and a visit to Thunder Bay.

Let's hear from others, and anyone interested in the planning of it.

We are still trying to update the mailing list and roster. Hope to have it sorted out soon.

Ride safe and ride often,
Joel "Doc" Kann

This last week:

Bike night at Stromboli Express. Good turnout with Frank, Bonnie N., Cindy and Bob H (“the newlyweds”), Fred S., S. Beth Thompson (our newest member), and myself. Lots of laughs and good food as usual.

Sundae ride
Kevin, Dorene, Bonnie N., Frank (our leader), Fred, Mike H., Steve Burton (our ex FO now of Tar River Chapter), and myself met at Handy Hugos on a beautiful fall-like day to ride down to the Ale House in Pittsboro. Bonnie, Mike and I took an impromptu detour from the group when we got separated, but with some dead reckoning and meandering, we managed to find our way and join up with the group for lunch. Good food and laughs, and admiring other bikes, then off to Mapleview Farms for some delicious ice cream. Then more backroads up through Bahama and Creedmore to home. Thanks, Frank, for another fun ride.
