8/26 Ride to the IHRT Calvin Conyers Memorial Ride

Sun, August 26, 2018 9:00 AM | Stephen Palincsar

Ride leader: Steve Palincsar

Members: Steve Forman, Sarah Clement, Dave VanAmayden

Weather: Sunny, breezy, 70s rising to 90

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28426908   26 miles, roads we ride on Tuesdays all the time: Bumpy Oak to Hawthorne, Ripley and Poorhouse to Pisgah with a rest stop in Pisgah Park; Mason Springs, Pisgah Marbury and Chicamuxen down to Strauss, Blair, Jennifer and Mattingly.   We arrived in plenty of time to meet the crowd gathering at Indian head, and joined the Memorial ride - some riding farther than others.

I prepared a return route on Chapmans Landing, but nobody took it.  I think we all went back to Bryans Road on Livingston.

Mishaps & mechanicals: None on the ride, but when I returned to Bryans Road Dave was there in the parking lot with a dead battery.  I had a loaner car (mine's in the shop) and we had some fun figuring out how to get the hood open, but a jump start got him going before the tow truck came.

AMS: 13.3
