Ride Sunday, April 28

You’ve heard the saying about April showers, right? Well, rain showers are coming Saturday, so we will ride on Sunday morning at 09:00. We’ll ride south to Cannon Falls, and bring your own food, because the bakery isn’t open on Sunday. We’ll make a stop at the county park at Lake Byllesby and skip the trip into town. We’ll follow the 56-mile route counterclockwise and should finish around Noon.

A Ride To Celebrate Our Friend Kelly Catlin

Sherry organized a social ride to celebrate the life of Kelly Catlin, who was a world-class cyclist who won a silver medal in the women’s team pursuit at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil. She won gold medals at the track cycling world championships in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Catlin was in graduate school at Stanford for computational mathematics. The ride starts Sunday at 13:00. There’s a social hour, with informal remembrances and snacks, after the ride. Follow the link for more information.
