Polly Ann ride Sunday Sept. 23, 10:00 am.

Join us at Evergreen Coffee Shop in Oxford.  The weather looks superb for Sunday, sunny and a high of 69.  Some folks heading to Leonard and others to Dryden.  Meeting back at the coffee shop after the ride.  Last week in one of our deep conversations on the Dryden ride the Rockford Files came up.  I asked what was the actors real name?  Somebody said Jim Rockford.  No that was his character in the show.  A few miles later it came to me James Garner!  Just one of the many topics we cover in our 30 mile ride.

Hope to see you this Sunday,
