I look forward to Wednesday night rides with friends. We ride for ice cream! We leave at 6:00 pm from the North Warren Playground parking lot, which is located not far from our house. We usually get home before dark. On August 13th there was another group using the playground parking lot, so we moved our meeting place up the road a little way.
At 6:00 pm we left en route the Busti Victorian Hall in Busti, NY. It was a short ride, but we ended up with our ice cream riding group split into two ice cream groups. One rider pulled off at a gas station in Sugar Grove . We learned later that Marvin pulled off for a bathroom break. Another rider, John, made a u-turn to check on Marvin. Paul, our ride leader, didn’t realize our group had been cut in half until we reached a crossroad in Busti. Those of us still with Paul pulled into the Busti Victorian Hall.
Paul doubled back to the gas station in Sugar Grove. No one was there; Paul returned to Busti. Paul finally spoke with John on his cell phone. John thought we were riding around Chautauqua Lake. That is where rest of our ice cream riding group went. It was a fun night regardless. It’s always a fun time when there is a good story to tell! It was a chilly ride. This summer sure has been a cold and rainy one.
