MERCER - Steady rain put a temporary damper on the annual Junefest bike tour on June 8 in Mercer.

However, it did not stop a small group of participants from leaving at the designated group departure time of 8 a.m.

"These northerners are wusses," kidded Jenny Leigh, who had driven about four hours up from Wauwotosa in Milwaukee County.

She said that she had loaded up on carbs while her partner, Betsy Bolte, of the same locale, said they had been sure to pack their rain jackets.

"We're just here for fun," said Bolte. "We're doing the 28."
