May 25, 2017, Evening WnD Ride

May 23, 2017

Due to lack of ridership this year, this will be the last regularly scheduled WnD evening ride for 2017. We may do some impromptu rides, but I do not intend to list this anymore. After 18 years as an ACTC ride, this may be the last whine and dine evening ride. In keeping with tradition, we will close with the Bullwinkle ride:

Cactus Garden + Kennedy/Shannon
This is a fun ride to a really interesting place. Pam Downs originally found this really cool cactus garden at an estate located in Saratoga.

According to my records this ride will be held on what would have been Ted Bonetti’s birthday. Let’s think of him as we do what will likely be the second to the last regularly scheduled Whine and Dine Evening Ride.

NOTE: I will not be able to ride this ride on this date for health reasons, but I will be at the start of the ride to sign people in. If riders want to do a different route, I am okay with that.
