Walt and Claire hosted a delightful ride through Belvidere and local countryside, including a shady and scenic cruise along the Delaware. And it was all accompanied by sunny, warm, dry weather.
Congratulations to Helen and Bob Bird for passing the DOGS New Member test. In case you've forgotten how this works, the hosts give the new team a special set of directions that contains one wrong turn. The challenge for the new team is to find their way back to the starting point anyway. After the other teams spent a worrisome half hour or so, they were gratified when Helen and Bob rolled into the Recreation Area, only slightly the worse for wear, and extra miles. Well done, Helen and Bob!
After the ride, we all enjoyed fresh fruit and banana bread, courtesy of Claire (and Walt). Oh yes, and brownies. George Wells brought brownies. Chocoholic-rated brownies. Yum! (Recipe: add ½ bag of Nestles Morsels to a box of Pillsbury mix.)
