Appearing for the first time on the Little Miami Scenic Trail: the Pewter Herr Peloton! Don Hahn met this group of 5 guys from a Chicago suburb on June 7. Their name, which means Grey-Haired Guys Who Ride Together, is on the front of the shirts designed by one of the wives.
The guys, who all attend the First Methodist Church in Lombard, Illinois, choose a new trail to visit in the Midwest each summer. The back of their shirts records their trail travels beginning in 2008.
The Pewter Herr Peloton rides only on dedicated bike trails, as they are safer and have places to stop and relax, which is what they were doing in the beautiful weather at Fosters where Don snapped these photos on Tuesday. They will be riding 2 1/2 days on our trail, and said they were enjoying their visit. They signed up for TrailMail, too. Visit us again, guys!
