Chesapeake Beach in Springtime

Sat, March 18, 2017 5:33 PM | Joan Oppel (Administrator)

A cloudy day turned bright sunny and temperatures hovered in the 50's. It was a terrific biking day, and the riders who joined in thanked me for the late Friday, nearly last-minute decision to post this ride.  We took a 17 mile route through Chesapeake Beach to the Herrington Harbor market - where nearly everyone had the usual snacks - PBJ sandwich, Clif Bar, nuts, trail mix. One rider however ordered a hot dog and french fries for a true mid-ride boost.

Thanks to Linda Bankerd, Chantal Briere, Pano Gianniotis, Steve Palincsar and Bob Thompson for being great riding companions today.

    It really turned into a fabulous day. 59 by the end of the ride; although it didn't feel like it when we were riding I had to take off the tights and all but a base layer top for the drive home. It was a very nice route. I'm going to have to add another 10 or so in the middle to make a 55 mile version for later in the season.

      I had thoughts of regret about the Cherry Blossom ride when it turned out to be sunny in the morning. But I believe the reports that there is still snow on the trails.

        Pano's commute goes right through the cherry blossom area and he told us on the ride that when he went through there Friday there were no - zero - cherry blossoms to be seen. None.
