Ride for Pie!

Seven of us rode today for pie!  We rode over to Rachel's Restaurant, at Alexandria,  for lunch.  It's a nice place to eat with good food and prices.  Merle took us on back roads to skirt around Anderson and to eventually get us down ond over to Winchester.  I had to stop once as all the farmers are getting the last of the corn and soybeans out of the fields and they are really raising a lot of dust.  I started sneezing and my nose started running so I had to stop and get it all under control (I just got over a rotten cold so that didn't help).  After I caught back up with Merle we rode some pretty roads toward Winchester.  Daryl stopped to buy gas without letting anyone know so we got separated for awhile.  We finally got back together and rode on into Mrs. Wicks Pie Shop in Winchester.  I had apple-walnut pie (warmed up) with a dip of ice cream on top and a drizzle of caramel syrup over it all.  Yum yum!  Some of the guys had peach pie while others had cherry-berry pie.  It was all good.  After pie, we rode to Portland, Hartford City, and then home.

A nice ride on a warm sunny day in the 60s and 70s.  I rode 162 miles.

Riding today (in order of riders): Merle Combs, Larry Davis, John Nave, Jerry Cole, Art Adrianson, Darrel Royal, and Billy Niverson.
