Bob Hoffman (pictured at right) organized a special TCBC ride on May 12th, that included a new, rather challenging, route in Washington County (great route, Bob), to which about 15 riders came. We rode from Chilkoot Cafe & Cyclery in Stillwater, taking our break in Afton to enjoy the fete being put on for Jessie. She was so gracious as she (for the umpteenth time, no doubt) greeted scores of well wishers as the town of Afton closed down its main street (now renamed Jessie Diggins Trail) and Selma's Ice Cream Parlor introduced a specially made ice cream called - appropriately enough - HERE COMES DIGGINS!

Of course, true to Minnesota weather, even though there was supposedly zero chance of rain forecast for this day, sure as the coming mosquitoes it did rain, though not too badly so on the return to the ride start nobody got "freckles." A few of the riders stopped at the Cafe afterward for a meal and listened for a set of a great little jazz combo. All in all a great day even if we did get a little damp!
