Ride leader: Steve Palincsar
Members: Alan Kurzweil, Jim Hudnall, Ron Altemus, Sam Perry, Barbara Haney, Joan Oppel, Tom Roberts and Don Gardner and Darrell Myer (who didn't sign the CC waiver)
Weather: Overcast except for about an hour and a half when the sun broke out and warmed everything up; low 30s at the start, briefly rising to close to 40 while the sun was out but slumping to the mid 30s when it clouded over again. Still, we were comfortable. Not much wind, making our own heat, in all a pretty nice day for riding.

Barbara posted an A/B version and indeed, A & B riders showed up. They chose to sign on the CC waiver, but once we crossed Indian Head Highway, natural selection asserted itself and the AB group was off the front and away. We saw them at the rest stop at Scott's store, but they left before the CC group - which at that point consisted of Steve, Ron, Joan, Don and Jim. We stayed together, taking several stop-and-cough breaks to accommodate Joan's cold along the way. I think everyone seemed happy to have a shorter route today, especially since for some, temperature conditions were below their minimums.
