Last "A" Road Ride from Wojo's. Sat. Sept. 23rd, 8:00 a.m.

Hi Folks!

The ride this week is going to be my last post of the season. Let's roll from Wojo's Nursery in Ortonville, Saturday at 8:00 a.m. Address is: 2570 Oakwood Rd., Ortonville, 48462. Would be nice to have a good turnout! My sincere thanks to everyone who participated and made the ride a success this year! Saturday we'll spin from Ortonville to Columbiaville and back, approximately 50 miles. We just can't end the season without one more punch in the nose up Hadley Hill! This will be a drop ride with the pace determined by those present at the start. Please bring navigational assistance if you decide to fall back. Also, please check over your bike prior to avoid mechanical issues out on the road. As always, looking forward to it!

Hope to have a great rip!! -Ken

This is a drop ride so, please bring navigational assistance if you decide to fall back. Rules of the road apply and check over your bike prior.

Hope to have you on board! -Ken
