12/26 Southern Exposure: Fort Washington

Tue, December 26, 2017 10:30 AM | Stephen Palincsar

Ride leader: Steve Palincsar

Members: Joan Oppel

Weather: low 30s at the start rising to at most 36, breezy, partly sunny

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/6473532 with the addition of a trip down to the Potomac by the lighthouse

Mishaps & mechanicals: a couple of chain drops

AMS: under 12

Cold at the start, very cold going down the hill on Marshall Hall Rd -- 35 mph at 32 degrees -- but by the time we climbed Barrys Hill we were ready to remove a layer, an opportunity afforded by an impromptu comfort stop at the Firehouse.  In all, a very pleasant ride, although made slower by the wind.
