The Gang went big on Labor Day. Forty-five bikers came for the ride and 54 of us enjoyed the cookout afterwards. Actually, we were socializing so happily in the Marblehead high school parking lot that we started our rides a bit late. We decide to split the 22-mile group of 25. Don T. led the first section and Jim A. the second. They made it all the way to the tip of Nahant. Their sweeps were Marco A. and Pat G. Polly T. led twenty 10-milers with sweeps David and Jean J.
After the ride, 53 members and one guest met at Don and Polly's for our cookout. Despite the prediction of an afternoon rain, it held off until four o’clock, when we’d planned to leave anyway. Al G. was the star chef. He cooked 37 hamburgers, 20 hot dogs and 12 sausage servings. Everyone brought munchies, a salad, or a desert. No one, no one, went hungry. Best of all they had a good chance to connect with each other.
Thank you for coming, friends all,
Polly and Don
