We had 19 participants for the Early-Bird Dinner at Cedars
Mediterranean Grill in Bastrop. A good time was had by all!
FRIDAY May 7, 2021
The day started with coffee and donuts at 8:00 AM at Richard Kesselus’s home. A pre-ride safety meeting for all 14 riders was held by Richard. Richard led the group through the local area back roads to reach the community of Paige, Tx (named after Don Paige of Abilene of course). After a gas stop, we proceeded South to the State Park in Smithville and we drove through the park, entered the Bastrop State Park, and continued back to the Kesselus home. The ride was 60 miles round trip shortened to allow preparation time for the famous FISH FRY DINNER. Everyone enjoyed the fellowship and riding again. Chase was provided by Tommy and Debi Goode.

Richard and Betty Kesselus graciously hosted the FISH FRY DINNER Friday evening. JJ Mooney fried up his delicious onion rings and everyone brought a side dish or dessert to complement the meal.
SATURDAY May 8, 2021
After our customary donuts, coffee and safety meeting, Tommy Goode led the group of 13 riders through the back roads of Bastrop County to the community of Rockne (named after Knute Rockne, for real). We proceeded to Rosanky where we ate lunch at El Borrego de Oro. After lunch we rode to Smithville for our last gas stop. After Tommy got lost twice in the tiny town of Smithville, he finally led us through the town of Upton and back to Bastrop! The ride was 70 miles round trip. Chase was provided by Jerry Krenek and Diana Hybner.
