The riding season is winding down. Days are getting shorter. We had a very nice Whine and Dine ride yesterday but it was almost dark by the time it was over. It is too bad as I am really enjoying the rides and the social times.
It is inevitable. As September comes the riders change focus and start doing other things. Next year will be different. Some of the riders will not be back and there will be new riders. I have made great new friends this year but I miss many of the riders from past seasons who did not return in subsequent years. I wonder sometimes about them.
I hope they are happy and well.
