Springing into the warm weather
With the beautiful weather that has descended upon Rochester this weekend, I thought I might remind folks of this column item:
Forget about spotting robins, baby bunnies or flowers as signs of spring finally arriving.
The undeniable sign of spring in Rochester is an open sign hanging at Silver Lake Boat and Bike Rentals .
And that sign will go up at 11 a.m. Friday, which is April 1.
Aaron Richardsays his outdoor recreation landmark is ready to launch for another season.
Since he took over business in 2007, Richard has added new features every year.
This year's additions are two side-by-side two-person bikes as well as one four-person cycle.
He says he decided to add the unorthodox cycles after test driving around the lake and determining they were safe as well as fun.
Richard also rents standard adult and children bikes, tandem bikes, canoes, paddle boats and kayaks. He also has small putt-putt golf course on the shore of Silver Lake.
