04/2017- Trail to Bumpy Oaks– C Class 15 Miles

Tue, April 18, 2017 5:30 PM | Mia Haynes

Leader:  Mia Haynes

Members:  Rod Barnes, Dan and Diana Donahue, and Daryl Stinnett

Today was a great day to ride, the wind was cooperating and the trail busy.  It was nice seeing Dan and Diana on a ride.  Dan led the charge as Diana, me and Rod followed along.  As we rode to Bumpy Oaks Dan pointed out a Blue Heron flying in our mist – it was nice to see.

Daryl, joined us as we rested on the platform by Bumpy Oaks.  We headed out at 5:30 and he was a little behind us, but it didn’t take him long to catch up.

On the return trip, Dan and Diana did their thing and told us we can go ahead.  So Daryl, Rod and I decided we would wait for them at the bench.  On our travel back we saw a beaver and two ducks.  Rod and I decided to turn left onto Middletown Road and take the 3 mile loop back to the trail – Middletown Road to Billingsley Road then right onto 301 South to the trail- while on Billingsley we saw 2 more ducks. 

When we got to the bench, Daryl was there and informed us that Dan and Diana had already made it back and were loading up their car.  He also told us that he tried to catch up with us on Middletown Road, but had encountered a dog, so he turned back.    

Excellent ride today guys and as always, thanks for coming out.
