This Saturday's Proteus 8am "pastry" ride will be a Tour de Farmers Markets in the College Park area.
Here is the route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2837281

This ride is designed to show off several local farmers markets or market locations (downtown College Park, Riverdale, College Park/Wells Ice Rink, and College Park/Hollywood.) The Wells and Hollywood markets will be open on Saturday morning, so bring your panniers and baskets and backpacks to stock up on goodies!

These rides are easy pace, no drop, social. Not many hills, mostly on off-road (paved) trails, and not much if any riding in traffic. Start and finish at Proteus bike shop (http://www.proteusbicycles.com). All are welcome. -Jeff
