It should be a beautiful day for a ride and I have been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile. It is a little further than Purebred on rt 52, so if we do not like it we can always swing by Purebred. The route is along our tried and true roads. We will meet at the Mansion parking lot in Ridley Creek State Park and leave promptly at 9:30. No one dropped (unless you ride out front, then all bets are off). Expect 45 miles and 2900 feet of climb, lovely weather and good people. See you there.
