Yesterday provided a pleasant evening as 10 Poky Pedalers shared Bike Fun on the first Poky Pedaling Potluck Picnic of the year.
A threat of afternoon storms persisted all day. Yet during our Poky Pedal, no rain fell and the cloud cover dimished providing us ample sunshine and moderate temps.
From Goerke Park, we headed west on a route to the Stevens Point Area Co-op to augment our already abundant picnic goodies.
From there, we proceeded to a covered pavilion in Schmeeckle Reserve just north of the intersection of Maria and Reserve. Although we enjoyed fine weather, it seemed prudent to choose a sheltered spot to ensure our picnic wouldn’t be dampened by a scattered thunderstorm.
This turned out to be a rather scenic and comfortable spot to chat and dine. Besides the trees all around us, the shelter itself has some intriguing artwork we had the opportunity to admire.
During our picnic, I received yet another request for the recipe for the potato salad that I bring to each PPPP. Finally, I have posted the recipe on the PPSP website.

Finally, we set a course back to Goerke Park and arrived well before dusk settled in. Another PPPP had come to an end, and we all had a great time sharing Bike Fun.
Poky Pedals are scheduled into October, so there is still plenty more Bike Fun to share. The next PPPP is on June 18. But you don’t have to wait that long because the Streetside Abstract Sculpture Ride is this Saturday May 25.
