Today, seven of us rode to Nick's restaurant in Roanoke, Indiana for lunch. Larry Burke, Larry Davis, Jerry Cole, Billy Niverson, John Nave, Merle Combs, and Charlie Thomas.
After lunch, six of us rode over to I-469, then north around Ft. Wayne to the New Haven exit. Larry Burke left us for errands in Ft. Wayne. We went east along the Maumee River toward Antwerp, Ohio. We stopped in Antwerp for a break, and then rode US 24 back to I-469. We turned off I-469 and went south on IN 1 through Ossian and then Bluffton, where we stopped at McDonald's for coffee and ice cream sundaes. After McDonald's, we rode west to the junction of IN 3 and IN 124. I continued west on IN 124 to Mt. Etna, and then home on IN 9 to Marion. The rest of the group turned south on IN 3, and then home. No pictures today, as we didn't stop much or see anything unusual.
I rode 171 miles and the weather was very nice. We saw lots of Amish farms with large work horses. Very nice ride today. Thanks Merle, for leading.
