MCBC Ice Cream Ride
The Ice Cream ride was sweet!

After inflating our tires and gearing up, we [Andrea, Stacy, Laura and Kim] rolled out of the Akron University Technology Center parking lot and followed the orange ice cream cones, which guided us without any directional uncertainties.
We opted for the 46-mile route, a scenic and simple route, with a few rolling hills. The scene: farmland. The animals: dairy cows, horses, goats, dogs and barnyard cats. The smell: Yucky poo. That would be the only negative about this ride, and it really wasn’t that bad.
We arrived at the first ice cream stop to see many cyclists enjoying some of the best ice cream we have ever had.
The second half of the ride was sunny and flat, I hated to see it end.
