The 14 riders enjoyed perfect summer weather (sunny, highs in the upper 70s). The lightly traveled paved road along Rockfish River offered gentle ups and downs among the wildflowers. At the old post office some riders continued on towards Schuyler while others pedaled back. Afterwards, the group headed to nearby Wood Ridge Farm Brewery.
