We spent the afternoon and part of the evening of Sunday, June 14, riding with our 2 Scoop CycleTherapy friends. We met Paul, Debbie, John, Carol, Scott, Donna, Mark, Faye and Bill at the North Warren Playground parking lot at 12:30 pm.
We put on our rain gear, as it started to rain shortly before our 1:00 pm departure time.
Our final destination was Sprague’s Maple Farms, located in Portville NY.
We made one stop, in Eldred PA, on our way to Sprague’s. A few of the ladies used the stop as a potty break. It didn’t take long for us to reach Sprague’s from that stop.
It was 3:30 pm, when we were seated and our dinner orders placed. Bob ordered a pork chop dinner. I ordered a breakfast entree: scrambled eggs, bacon and pancakes. The pancakes were unlimited. I couldn’t even finish the three pancakes that came with my meal!
After dinner we started our ride back home.
We stopped at Marilla Reservoir in Bradford PA, where I planned to take a group picture of the eleven of us at the covered bridge. We got sidetracked, though, when we saw an eagle in a tree.
We heard thunder, while at the reservoir, and changed our planned route home. We backtracked a short way and took Songbird Lane to Route 770 to Route 59. This was a faster way home than taking Route 346 to Route 321. It rained on our way home. I had taken off my rain gear when we arrived at Sprague’s. I did not put the rain pants back on, when we left Sprague’s. I got wet and cold. As soon as we returned home, I took a long, hot shower and went to bed. The next morning I awakened with a sore throat, runny nose, a cough and a hoarse voice. It took the better part of the week to feel better!
