Fifteen riders and four talkers this morning. Bob Watters led us down to Willow Glen Cafe in Gordonton, with a little bit of gravel along the way to keep us all regular. We were joined by a sixteenth rider for lunch. Whether by good luck or good management, we almost entirely avoided the rain today, with the heaviest fall occurring while we were eating lunch. It was pleasantly warm, and four of us stopped in Pokeno for icecreams on the way home.
