Prepping for the weekend ride. Saturday I take a group to lunch at Goodfields Busy Corners Cafe. It used to actually be on the corner of Route 150 and 116. However, it has moved down the street into a new building and is no longer on the corner. Perhaps they should change their name to Down the Street Cafe. It would make more sense. Ha, I jest. They can call it whatever they want and they still serve the best rhubarb pie ever. For non-local followers they actually make a pie from rhubarb. If prepared correctly it is quite tasty. I believe it is an acquired taste. Anyway, anyone who would like to join the ride, it begins at Russells Cycle Shop. We leave at 11:00 a.m. It is about a 40 mile ride but, as I have already stated, we stop for lunch in Goodfield. Our route will be ridden exclusively on county roads so traffic will be minimal. The only thing that could present problems are the tractors, combines and grain trucks taking product to the elevators. However, they always give bikers a wide birth because they know the dangers implicit with slow moving vehicles.
All levels are welcome and we ride to accommodate the slowest biker. The ride, including lunch, will take approximately three hours and Russells is providing a mechanic in case of problems.
Looking forward to the ride this Saturday.


  1. Rhubarb pie? My favorite. Warm with vanilla ice cream? Yes!

    They don't spoil it with strawberries, do they?


  2. No strawberries on rhubarb. Unheard of in these parts. Oil and water!!
