We give thanks to God for His wisdom and His Blessings….
Russ “Rusty Bucket” Bugge and Ana Maria Velazquez bring this month’s ride report to you. Big thanks go out to the entire CSBA Team for keeping His message pure and the path lit…
The September CSBA ride was again, like nearly every ride this year, subject to threats of weather. Although weather predictions tormented our plans of a scenic ride through both Bucks and Montgomery Counties, we were very fortunate that Hurricane Hermine did not make his way into the Philadelphia area, giving us an opportunity to ride for the full day. Some of us did have to pass through a rain cloud moving through northern Bucks County on our way to the Starlite Diner, but by the time we started our ride, there was no more of that to be seen and the day turned out full of nothing but sunshine.
Perhaps because of the weather forecasts, the gathering for breakfast developed a little late and we may have been a little late to start the ride. Pitching in relief, Rusty Bucket stepped up in the absence of senior leadership, to host and lead the day’s ride/event. The morning route-prep meeting is a chance to discuss the CSBA riding rules, take and share suggestions, and provide details specific to the planned route for the day. Matko took charge of the Fast (F1) Paced Group and Rusty led our Chase (S1) Group with a mix of Spirited and Cruisers filling the ranks. Both groups added to a total of 26+ riders.
