Jeff and I went on another group ride this morning and I remembered the camera this time! Although I still wish I'd had it yesterday so I could have shared scenes of everyone at the beach and all our bikes lined up along a stone wall. Due to a rather wild party the night before, only three others showed up to bike, though a couple more managed to drive to the coffee break spot!
The coffee spot is in an old barn surrounded by gnarled apple trees.
There are quaint old New England buildings all around and a view of the meeting house spire.
We lean our bikes on the trees, select our coffee and baked goods and gather at huge picnic tables arranged on the lawn. It's fun to see bikes everywhere you look!
Around the edges of the stone wall lined lawn are gardens with some last fall blooms like these dahlias.
A cold, slow bee was gathering some last pollen in the sunshine.
I'm not sure what these seed pods are called, but I loved the color and funny spiky look of them! Does anyone know?
We pedaled 25 miles in all and enjoyed slightly warmer temps than the day before!
