Big turnout for Slug Velo’s birthday ride

Slug Velo ride - February

Cold temperatures didn’t stop over 30 riders from helping Beth Hamon celebrate the third birthday of Slug Velo today. Beth founded Slug Velo as a slow and social riding club and her rides always draw a refreshing mix of bike lovers young and old.

I brought Eleni along, but since today was my birthday Robert offered to pull her in the trailer alongside his son Christopher (thanks Robert!). They both had a great time and were rewarded with treats and strawberry milk at our destination in St. Johns.

See the rest of my photos from this ride.

    Slug rides are always fun- I’m sorry I missed the anniversary. I’m leading the March Slug/OHPV/whoever else Rites of Spring ride, so be there!
