I was unable to make this ride, unfortunately, so Stephen is providing this recap. Thanks for heading this ride up Stephen!!
The seven of us (John, Phil, Linda, Ellis, Stephen, Tim and Jared) departed about 40 minutes late as the Broad Street Run prevented some people from arriving on time to the meet-up spot. The ride out was fantastic, though, and with little incident (I even found a pair of cycling gloves!). It was pretty sunny and riding alongside rivers and creeks most of the way out to Phoenixville got us all talking about a dip on the way back. Although the Sly Fox event was basically in a strip mall parking lot, we found some grass to lounge in for the afternoon. The beer was abundant and the crowd in high spirits. A few of us took advantage of the adjacent Dairy Queen. The ride back included a quick swim in the Schuylkill near the Valley Forge park and none of the predicted rain. Two thumbs way up!
Our April ride will not technically be in April, but it will be awesome nonetheless. We’ll be riding out to the Sly Fox Goat Race and Bock Fest. This event is one of a kind, and not to be missed. It will be a longer rider, about 30 miles each way. But there will be very few hills, and lots of off road paths. There is a train station nearby, in case you want to hitch a ride home. The fest starts at 11am, so to get there in a timely manner, we’ll be leaving the Art Museum at 9am. Get ready for an awesome ride and an awesome day!! See you then!
