Patch Rides

I was going through some photos and I came across this picture of my old bicycling jacket, Years ago they gave patches when you did an organized ride. A lot of these rides are not done any more like T.A.S.S.L.E. (Tour Along the South Shore of Lake Erie) this ride was from Cleveland to toledo and back the next day. It was about 100 miles each day. The 4 County Metric is not done any more either. The Sunday in June and T.O.S.R.V (Tour Of the Scito River Valley) are still being done. T.O.S.R.V. is not as big as it once was. At one point there were over 6500 riders. This was prior to the choice of doing an official half century ride. This is ride is on my bucket list to do again,,
