SSR, May 2008

The Summer Solstice Ralley of in Stowe, Vermont. A great opportunity for some rides with a great bunch of people. I had to come one day later so it was only two and a half days for me. Weather was not great but good enough for some fun on the road and in Stowe. The second name of the Ralley "Super Soaker Ralley" did apply especially on Friday and Sunday.

After a short dry period we stop at Taconic Parkway for removing the rain gear. Pete does not leave his bike. An hour later we had to put the rain gear back on.
Back home I washed the bike. The afternoon sun was shining.
A relaxing end of a nice weekend
