Park County Covered Bridge Bike Ride, IN

On Sunday, September 29th the weather forecast called for rain, but that didn’t stop the nine brave souls that decided we wouldn’t melt.

We all met at the Jailhouse Café in Rockville for breakfast at 9:00 AM. By 10:00 the weather was looking better and we were all full, so we decided to head out. We rode nine miles to our first stop at the Cecil Harden Dam on Raccoon Lake. Paul was our SAG driver for the day and he met us there with drinks and snacks. From there we rode five miles to Mansfield and walked over the covered bridge and toured the mill. Then, it was another five miles to Bridgeton. This was to be our ice cream stop! Mike, the owner of the mill, was grinding flour and showed us around. After our fill of goodies, we rode the 10 miles back to Rockville, where several of us decided to have lunch at the 36 Saloon.

We all had a great time and were thankful that Paul was there to support us when we needed him. I’m sure that whatever calories we burned that day were all gained back from all the great food.
