Smallwood Park>Bumpy Oak CC Touring

Sun, September 10, 2017 9:30 AM | Ron Altemus (Administrator)

Leader:  Ron Altemus

Member:  Chris Fairhall

Route:  Advertised as https://ridewithgps.com/routes/25073309 but slightly modified.  Strauss, Hawthorne, and Chicamuxen to a rest stop at Smallwood Park.  Then Sweetman, Bicknell, and Poorhouse with a route change that had us take Ripley, Hawthorne, Bumpy Oak, and the IHRT back to our start.  Total of 28 miles instead of the announced 32.

Weather:  another great day.  Plenty of sunshine with blue clouds, temps in the 60s, and some wind that seemed to change direction on us whenever we turned.

AMS:  14.4

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  minor wardrobe malfunction rectified at Smallwood Park.

Report:  Another attempt to entice CC & C riders to a somewhat shorter, more leisurely paced ride.  Chris, normally a strong B rider, is resuming cycling after time recuperating, so he liked the relative flatness of our final routing.  Riding together throughout, we had good conversation, a rest stop at Ollie's for replenishment, and got back in time to watch the Redskins (if so inclined!)
