A Fall Ride

It was certainly that, Fall riding, the day started with uncertainty of the weather rain ,snow ? But a hearty group made their way to view the  Bad Lands in Cheltenham  and lunch stop at the Coffee Bean , or lunch  plus dinner  the proportion were generous . Riding up and down and through the twists of  The Forks of the Credit Road  and  Hockley Valley Road with the sun shinning made for another great 523  experience .
