Join me on ride to the famous Shady Maple Market in Lancaster via the lovely Conestoga Valley. Route highlights include numerous farms, a roadside menagerie and a covered bridge. Behind the market there is a large pen that is usually home to a few llamas and makes for a nice lunch spot. Return trip is a reversal of the route out. A few steep pitches in both directions, but nothing resembling a true climb. I will be riding my tank with fat tires and will have food to tote back, so this is not going to be a fast ride. I’ve never felt the need to lock up my bike outside the market, but bring a light lock if it will make you feel secure. Don’t know what cell service is like in the camping area these days so don’t count on being able to contact me on Friday. Due to the lack of cue sheets we will regroup at the turns and wherever else necessary.

The Ride of Silence Poem Tonight we number many but ride as one In honor of those not with us, friends, mothers, fathers, sisters, sons With helmets on tight and heads down low, We ride in silence, cautious and slow The wheels start spinning in the lead pack But tonight we ride and no one attacks The dark sunglasses cover our tears Remembering those we held so dear Tonight's ride is to make others aware The road is there for all to share To those not with us or by our side, May God be your partner on your final ride
